Forest inventory for above ground carbon estimation in Biosphere Reserve of W. Data mobilized in the framework of the BID-AF2015-0030-SMA project of Isidore AMAHOWE

Latest version published by GBIF Benin on Sep 8, 2016 GBIF Benin

Diameter at breast height (DBH) and total height were measured for all tree species within the plot. This work comes from a database made by Yetein et al. (in press) who carried out a study on "Dynamic of land cover/land use and above ground carbon estimation in Biosphere Reserve of W. We recorded all the tree species from this database. From the classification of the main land cover types operated with year 2013 Landsat satellite imagery, 53 plots of 0.2 ha (100 m x 20 m plots) were randomly established. Then, Diameter at breast height (DBH)(cm) and Height (m) were measured on all tree species on the plots. A total number of 721 records were made in this study.
