Zeng, Ning; et al. (2012): Carbon sequestration via wood harvest and storage: An assessment of its harvest potential

Zeng, Ning; King, Anthony W.; Zaitchik, Ben; Wullschleger, Stan D.; Gregg, Jay; Wang, Shaoqiang; Kirk-Davidoff, Dan (2012): Carbon sequestration via wood harvest and storage: An assessment of its harvest potential. In: Climatic Change. (published online) DOI 10.1007/s10584-012-0624-0
