1526: Carbon storage by habitat

This paper is summarised from Natural England Research Information Note RIN043, ‘Carbon storage by habitat: Review of the evidence of the impacts of management decisions and condition of carbon stores and sources’.

Year of Publication2012

The most important improvements to carbon storage could be made by reducing the erosion and degradation of peatlands, converting arable land to permanent grassland where appropriate, reducing soil disturbance when managing and restoring habitats, reduce fertiliser leaching into water and by reducing waste. This is a rapidly developing field and large uncertainties remain.
