    Abstract: The important climate-related functions of forest ecosystems are carbon sequestration, regulating the global carbon cycle and climate change mitigation. About 80% of the terrestrial carbon is stored as forest biomass and soil organic carbon. Deforestation and forest degradation show an alarming high, mainly due to the conversion of natural forest t... Show More
