  • A nondestructive method for estimating the amount of carbon stored by individuals, communities, vegetation types, and coverages, as well as their volume and aboveground biomass, is presented. This methodology is based on information on carbon stocks obtained through three-dimensional analysis of tree architecture and artificial neural networks. This technique accurately incorporates the diversity of plant forms measured in plots, transects, and relev\'es. Stored carbon in any vegetation type is… CONTINUE READING
