Ecosystem carbon storage across the grassland-forest transition in the high Andes of Manu National Park, Peru

Abstract:

Improved management of carbon storage by terrestrial biomes has significant value for mitigating climate change. The carbon value of such management has the potential to provide additional income to rural communities and provide biodiversity and climate adaptation co-benefits. Here, we quantify the carbon stores in a 49,300-ha landscape centred on the cloud forest-grassland transition of the hgh Andes in Manu National Park, Peru. Aboveground carbon densities were measured across the landscape...
