Spatial distribution of regional whole tree carbon stocks and fluxes of forests in Europe

M.J. Schelhaas, G.J. Nabuurs

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

This report presents carbon stocks and fluxes of the whole-tree biomass of European forests and other wooded land, distinguished into coniferous, deciduous and mixed forests. The results are presented at the European, the national and (where possible)the regional level. Results concerning carbon stock, net ecosystem production and net biome production for the whole-tree biomass were derived from a detailed European forest resource database and converted to carbon using biomass expansion factors. Uncertainties and differences from other estimates are discussed.
