Abstract

Contains information about carbon storage in the vegetation, soils, and peatlands of Russia. Estimates of carbon storage in forests are derived from statistical data from the 1988 national forest inventory of Russia and from other sources. Methods are presented for converting data on timber stock into phytomass of tree stands, and for estimating carbon storage in forest soils and peatlands in Russia's administrative territories and natural ecoregions. Also included is information on the timber stock of Russia's primary tree species and phytomass of forest vegetation, mortmass, and peat.
