Series: Environmental Science, Engineering and Technology, Climate Change and its Causes, Effects and Prediction
BISAC: SCI092000

In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the technology, measurement techniques and environmental effects of carbon sequestration. Topics discussed include biomass and its role in climate change; forestry carbon sequestration projects in the agricultural sector; assessing the carbon-stock potentinal by biomass of a Mediterranean agroforestry landscape; biochar as a fertilizer substitute and method to sequester carbon in soils; and the impact of crop plant residues on carbon sequestration in soil.
