The objectives of this study were to examine plant biomass accumulation and carbon (C) storage in four different aged Sonneratia apetala plantations in the Leizhou Bay in South China. The allometric equations using diameter at breast height (DBH) and height (H) were developed to quantify plant biomass. The total forest biomass (TFB) of S. apetala plantation at 4, 5, 8, and 10 years old was 47.9, 71.7, 95.9, and 108.1 Mg ha−1, respectively. The forest biomass C storage in aboveground (AGB) and… CONTINUE READING
