Data analyses: Tree standing biomass
(Y) was estimated from stand tables of tallied DBHs as described and calculated by Brown (1997) and then converted to Mg [ha.sup.-1].
His work showed that although warming may reassemble invertebrate communities and lower total invertebrate density, it may have a neutral effect on standing biomass
due to changes in the size structure of the community.
A rotation system can be used where trees are cut in a specific order or mature branches harvested, ensuring constant standing biomass
. Farmers could also harvest some trees then let the area naturally regenerate, protecting young shoots from being eaten by livestock.
Das, "Above ground standing biomass
and carbon storage in village bamboos in North East India," Biomass & Bioenergy, vol.
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 14.47 and 39.63 gt/acre respectively.
Hence, to compare the biomass and carbon stocks of Acacia and rubber, the average total standing biomass
over the lifespan of a typical forest plantation was adopted.
Therefore, the amount of nutrients stored by standing biomass
depends upon plant growth rate and nutrient content in tissues.
The Tephrosia standing biomass
input to the soil from the fallows was estimated at 3.5 t [ha.sup.-1] in all the treatments except for the no-input control.
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.
Life history, population dynamics, standing biomass
and production of Bosminopsis deitersi (Cladocera) in a shallow tropical reservoir.
The 55% of standing biomass
composed of gizzard shad was slightly higher than the 45% found by Jenkins (1967) in southern ponds.
