Inventory measurements were separated by age group, 5 to 7 years old and 8 to 12 years old, to determine mean standing biomass quantities of 14.
Therefore, the amount of nutrients stored by standing biomass depends upon plant growth rate and nutrient content in tissues.
Classifying the forest area into six levels of above-ground standing biomass carbon density (tons/ha) shows this aggradation of carbon in greater detail (Fig.
The 55% of standing biomass composed of gizzard shad was slightly higher than the 45% found by Jenkins (1967) in southern ponds.
2009) analyzed above ground standing biomass using a log linear model and found that the biomass reached up to 121.
The influence of both early and late-season grasshopper herbivory on standing biomass has been shown to be highly dependent on precipitation and temperature patterns in the northern Great Plains (Branson 2008, 2010), with forage destruction significantly higher in years with lower production (Branson et al.
Land-use change' by itself can be more or less beneficial, but may also result in release of carbon originally stored in the soil or as standing biomass, increasing GHG in the atmosphere, and reducing the overall GHG savings over a biofuel's life cycle.
In order to assess the aboveground standing biomass dynamics, the remaining green and dead biomass were also separated, and in flowering culms, we classified the spikelets as flowering structures.
Specifically, do differences in the plant community influence mean size, standing biomass, and abundance of zooplankton?
To calculate the standing biomass and annual yield of lichens for lichen ranges of different conditions, we also had to evaluate the dependence of lichen stand biomass on lichen stand volume.
These are, what governs variation in biotic diversity among ecosystems (the distribution and abundance of species) and what governs variation in standing biomass among ecosystems (the distribution and abundance of energy and materials among abiotic and biotic components)?
