Question
Asked 27th Sep, 2022

Where to get carbon sequestration per habitat type?

I am looking for a table where, for each habitat type (EUNIS, Corine land classes) there is an averaged amount of carbon retention per unit area. The region to analyze is Portugal, therefore an European-wide list would fit.
Anyone knows if these data are available?
Thanks in advance.

Diogo Alagador Generally these kind of data are published as 'State of forest report' biennially in India by Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (https://fsi.nic.in/fsi-node) . The same type of information may be available for your study area. Portugal government websites may help you in this regard.

In general wetlands first, then meadows, then forests when looking at soils. However, if you are counting above ground sequestration, then forest, wetlands, grasslands. However, wetlands and grasslands are more secure, because fires do not change that carbon, where a forest fire wipes out that carbon.

The other option is since Portugal is small with only two main vegetation type, Temperate Broadleaf and Mixed Forests and the second one is the Mediterranean Forests--it is much more important to know the difference in carbon sequestration in relation to land use. And for soil carbon sequestration, if you have a native perennial grass understory vs an annual weed grass. The annual weed grass DOES NOT sequester soil carbon. And then farm land and cleared forest meadows and fresh water and salt water wetlands are a four extra wild cards in your study.

Like so many, I am shocked and saddened at seeing war break out in Europe. My thoughts – and those of the ResearchGate team – are with the people of Ukraine and everyone affected.
ResearchGate is an international company, whose purpose is to enable scientists across the world to work together openly and collaboratively, regardless of borders or nationality. We have people from over 40 countries on our staff of around 200, and being based in Berlin, we are profoundly aware of the human cost of conflicts, the echoes of which have shaped and scarred our home city. We join with the international community in condemning the actions of the Russian state.
We have been asking ourselves: What can we do?
From today, we will offer free advertising space worth $2.5 million on our network to humanitarian organizations working to respond to the crisis. ResearchGate benefits from over 50 million visitors every month, and we hope this initiative can help raise funds and awareness for those organizations that are having direct impact and need support.
We also want to use our platform to highlight the response from the scientific community. Personally, I have found the messages of support from scientists everywhere to be truly heartfelt, and I would like to highlight some of the community initiatives I’ve seen here:
Additionally, I’m posting here some of the organizations responding to the crisis and actively soliciting donations:
To help gather more support for these initiatives, please consider sharing this post further (you don’t need a ResearchGate account to see it), and I will continue to update it with other initiatives as I find them. You can also click “Recommend” below to help others in your ResearchGate network see it. And if you know of any other community initiatives that we can share here please let us know via this form: https://forms.gle/e37EHouWXFLyhYE8A

Due to the current civilization progress in recent decades, acceleration of the development of industry, automotive, urban agglomerations, intensification of agricultural production, etc. and related greenhouse gas emissions, global warming, ozone layer depletion in the atecologicalecologicalmosphere, increase of environmental pollution, growing problem of smog in urban agglomerations, the increase in pollution of the seas and oceans to which unsorted waste is thrown away is cut out as part of the predatory economy of tropical forests in the Amazon and other largest natural forest ecosystems.
In addition, the secondary effect of global warming of the Earth's climate is the increasing, more frequent weather anomalies, including drought, leading to steppe and desertification of areas that were previously natural forest ecosystems or areas exploited by agriculture.
As a result of the above-mentioned processes, every year many species of flora and fauna disappear forever.
As a result, natural biodiversity diminishes, which for millions of years evolved evolutionally on Earth.
In this way the natural resources of the planet Earth are irretrievably in decline.
In view of the above, the issue of environmental protection and biodiversity is one of the most important challenges of humanity in the 21st century.
Classical economics must change towards a green economy based on the strategy of sustainable pro-ecological development.
Therefore, I am asking you for the following query:
How can environmental protection and biodiversity be improved by using current ecological technologies?
Please, answer, comments.
I invite you to the discussion.
Best wishes

Overview
The H2020-MSCA-ITN-EJD ED- ARCHMAT Joint Doctorate (www.ed-archmat-ejd.eu) brings together a multidisciplinary network of European and non-European institutions active in the Cultural Heritage and Conservation Science sector in Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, Greece, Israel, USA, Brazil which includes:
· 8 HEIs with multidisciplinary leading experts in CH and Archaeometry from different fields such as Chemistry, Physics, Geology, Biology, Material Science, Archaeology, Archaeometry, History of Art, Communication and Computer Systems.
· 2 European and 2 non-European Museums
· 2 International Research Centers on Conservation and Material Science
· 2 SME’s active in the Conservation sector.
· 1 Economical and Technological Pole dedicated to promotion of entrepreneurship in Culture, Heritage and Conservation Science
· 2 Management and Business NGOs and Civil Society Organizations (WATCH World Association for the protection of Tangible and Intangible Cultural Heritage in Time of Armed conflict)
· 1 Governmental Institutions in Cultural Heritage
The common goal of all ED-ARCHMAT Consortium members is to create a sustainable, interdisciplinary, intersectoral learning network/platform which will act as a reference point for ESRs well beyond the successful completion of their PhD project, guiding them right through the early stages of their professional careers in the field of Conservation Science/Archaeometry/Cultural Heritage.
The 13 Early Stage Researchers, ESRs, employed by ED-ARCHMAT beneficiaries will form a new generation of Conservation Science professionals equipped with transdisciplinary key knowledge, competences and skills as defined in the European Qualification Framework (EQF)] spanning different sectors such as Physical and Chemical Science, Cultural Heritage, Conservation, Archaeology, Museology, Art History, Project Management, IT.
