Abstract: 
Today, one of the most important challenges facing human societies is global warming and reduces biodiversity. For the present study, Elevation profile Veisar forests west of Mazandaran were selected. To calculate the biomass of tree and vegetation diversity in the forest, in a profile height (700 to 1, 500 meters above sea level) was 9 floors and on each floor of 8 plots with the exception of 1500 meters above sea level with 5 floors and a total of 69 plots of 400 square meters plots (20 × 20 m) were taken All the trees in each plot, diameter at breast height of 7/5 cm of coverage and type of species identified and measured. The measurement data herbaceous plant cover, a micro-plot of 100 square meters (10 × 10 m) in the center of the plot on foot and herbal species of plant cover percentage were measured according to Braun-Blanquet method. The value of carbon sequestration by combining the relationship between size, density dry and carbon coefficient was calculated. After determining the levels defined by common measurements to determine the relationship between indicators of biological diversity (richness, evenness, diversity) and Carbon Analysis of variance was used. The findings showed that between the amounts of biomass amount of carbon stored in trees with no significant relationship between diversity indices in elevation. These results suggest that proper management of forest biomass for appropriate monitoring research in the area of biodiversity indices cannot be used as a means.
