Forests playing a critical role to slow down or to stop the climate change
Vishnu K Solanki, Vinita Parte and JS Ranawat
Because of upset the balance of the world’s carbon cycle the problem of global climate change has occurred by humans, together with other greenhouse gases like methane, exceed the earth’s capacity to store carbon in forests, oceans, living and dead biomass are responsible for atmospheric carbon emissions. Forests also help in regulation of water ways to protect soil, cool cities and entire regions and more. Through forestry there is a very large potential for carbon storage. Renewable biomass plays a multiple role in which an energy source and fodder, grasses, food production, biodiversity conservation, yield and other services for the society and the mitigation of the impact of climate change both. Trees with row crops, perennial crops, minimal tillage, rotational grazing systems and other techniques these are the different forestry systems help in the reduction of storage of carbons in soils and also reduce the carbon emissions. Reduction in the use of fertilizer can help to cut the emission of nitrous oxide and management of manure and biogas systems can lower methane emissions.
