Tree biomass and carbon stock of a community‐managed mangrove forest in Bohol, Philippines
Mangrove plays a significant role in climate change mitigation particularly in carbon absorption and minimizing the detrimental impacts of sea level rise, salt-water intrusion and tidal surges. In
Plant Diversity and Carbon Storage of a Rhizopora Stand in Verde Passage, San Juan, Batangas, Philippines
Despite of lean diversity, bakawan stand was still regarded healthy and vigorous in mitigating the impacts of climate change because of its huge carbon density estimates.
Indigenous knowledge and practices for the sustainable management of Ifugao forests in Cordillera, Philippines
ABSTRACT In the Philippines, many indigenous peoples such as the Ifugaos in Cordillera Mountains have continued to thrive in their relatively remote yet self-sufficient communities. Notwithstanding
Philippines’ Mangrove Ecosystem: Status, Threats and Conservation
The Philippines has very rich biodiversity in terms of number and percentage. It is regarded as one of 17 mega biodiversity countries due to its geographical isolation, diverse habitats and high
Examining how long fallow swidden systems impact upon livelihood and ecosystem services outcomes compared with alternative land-uses in the uplands of Southeast Asia
Swidden agriculture or shifting cultivation has been practised in the uplands of Southeast Asia for centuries and is estimated to support up to 500 million people – most of whom are poor, natural
Stand density management and blue carbon stock of monospecific mangrove plantation in Bohol, Philippines
Abstract Blue carbon pertains to carbon stock that is stored by marine ecosystems including mangrove forest. Density and blue carbon stock assessment was conducted covering mature Rhizophora stylosa
Conserving Mangroves for Their Blue Carbon: Insights and Prospects for Community-Based Mangrove Management in Southeast Asia
Mangrove forests of Southeast Asia have significantly decreased to give way to more favored economic activities such as aquaculture production, rice farming, and very recently oil palm plantation
Sustainable mangrove rehabilitation: Lessons and insights from community-based management in the Philippines and Myanmar
This study generally aims to synthesize the best practices and challenges in mangrove rehabilitation in the Philippines, Myanmar, Japan, China and India. It employed an in-depth review of secondary
Land use characterization and change detection of a small mangrove area in Banacon Island, Bohol, Philippines using a maximum likelihood classification method
Geospatial information of small mangrove islands in the Philippines is usually lacking. Such information is vital to monitor mangrove cover change and craft plans for their sustainable management.
