TAILIEUCHUNG - Carbon sequestration potential of state flower of Uttarakhand and Himanchal Pradesh, India: Rhododendron arboretum

A dynamic growth model (CO2FIX) has been used for estimating the carbon sequestration potential of Burans (Rhododendron arboreum), an indigenous medicinal plant of higher hills of western Himalayan region. The present study has been carried out in the campus of . College of Horticulture, ., Bharsar, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand. The temperature and rainfall of this hilly area ranged from - to c. It is capable of thriving on snow and heavy rainfall condition. CO2FIX was parameterized for a simulation of 50 years respectively. | Carbon sequestration potential of state flower of Uttarakhand and Himanchal Pradesh India Rhododendron arboretum
