According to this study, organic carbon and soils of the world comprise the bulk of the terrestrial carbon and serve as a major sink and source of atmospheric carbon. Increasing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs) may be mitigated by increasing carbon sequestration in vegetation and soil. The study attempted to estimate the biomass production and carbon sequestration potential of different plantation ecosystems in north-western Himalaya, India.
