Research Highlight

Polynomial fit to the modelled daily GPP and annual GPP calculated by integrating the fit during 1st July 2015 to 30th June 2016

The gross photosynthetic carbon uptake (GPP) by a moist evergreen semi-deciduous broeadleaf forest at the Kaziranga National Park in north-east India is estimated to be 2.11 kgC m-2 y-1 as calculated by a bottom-up process-based model using the meteorological parameters and leaf area index as input variables. This provides the first hand estimate of the carbon sequestration potential of this pristine forest ecosystem.
