Impact of logging on aboveground biomass stocks in lowland rain forest, Papua New Guinea
Greenhouse-gas emissions resulting from logging are poorly quantified across the tropics. There is a need for robust measurement of rain forest biomass and the impacts of logging from which carbon losses can be reliably estimated at regional and global scales. We used a modified Bitterlich plotless technique to measure aboveground live biomass at six unlogged and six logged rain forest areas (coupes) across two ∼3000-ha regions at the Makapa concession in lowland Papua New Guinea....[Show more]
