Abstract: 

The present study investigated the potential of carbon sequestration in Pistcia atlantica, Acer monspessulanum, Amygdalus scoparia and Ephedra procera in Bagh-e Shadi Herat in Yazd province. The carbon sequestration in P. atlantica was analyzed in both protected and under-graze areas. For selecting the trees, the diameter classes sampling procedure was applied and the species were classified into four classes based on their diameters. One tree from each diameter class was randomly selected, cut, and different parts of the tree (i.e. root, trunk, branches, and leaves) were separately weighed. To estimate the mean weight of the litter in each plot, a (1 m2) sample plot was randomly chosen and the amount of litter was carefully collected and weighed. The samples were dried, and then the percentage of the organic carbon was determined using the furnace combustion method. By determining the ash weight and having the initial weight as well as the ratio of the organic carbon to the organic material, the degree of carbon sequestration was calculated separately for each plant. The results indicated that the amount of carbon sequestration in Pistacia was 6.232 and 4.461 ton in the protected and under-graze areas respectively but these differences were not significant. Comparing carbon sequestration in different species revealed that Amygdalus and Ephedra respectively contained the highest and the lowest amount of carbon sequestration. To summarize, it can be claimed that the species under study play an important role in carbon sequestration in the forests out of the North of Iran.
