Cook-Patton, Susan C.; et al. (2020): Mapping carbon accumulation potential from global natural forest regrowth

Cook-Patton, Susan C.; Leavitt, Sara M.; Gibbs, David; Harris, Nancy L.; Lister, Kristine; Anderson-Teixeira, Kristina J. et al. (2020): Mapping carbon accumulation potential from global natural forest regrowth. In Nature 585 (7826), pp. 545–550. DOI: 10.1038/s41586-020-2686-x.

"Regrowing natural forests is a prominent strategy for capturing additional carbon3, but accurate assessments of its potential are limited by uncertainty and variability in carbon accumulation rates2,3. To assess why and where rates differ, here we compile 13,112 georeferenced measurements of carbon accumulation."
