Stop biodiversity loss or we could face our own extinction, warns UN
The world has two years to secure a deal for nature to halt a ‘silent killer’ as dangerous as climate change, says biodiversity chief

GHG Mitigation Potential of Different Grazing Strategies in the United States Southern Great Plains - Regeneration International
Ever wonder what impact livestock really have on landscapes? According to this study, ruminants consuming only grazed forages under appropriate management result in more carbon sequestration than emissions.
What Trees Absorb the Most Carbon Dioxide?
What Trees Absorb the Most Carbon Dioxide?. Respiration is the process by which a tree takes in carbon dioxide and releases oxygen. The amount of carbon dioxide a tree can hold is called carbon sequestration. They sequester this carbon dioxide by storing it in their trunks, branches, leaves and roots; the best trees for carbon dioxide absorption...
A Mycological Call for Action — Fungi.net
The Synergistic Beneficial Contributions of Mushroom Mycelium: Carbon Sequestration, Soil Building and Spores for Nucleation in Water Droplet Formation. It is hard to imagine why only a few of us (thank you !) have any clue about the importance of fungi in the ecosystem. Here are three p
Growing Perennial Wheat on Highway Shoulders | MOTHER EARTH NEWS
The development of perennial wheat cultivars may open up highway shoulders and other marginal land for use as farmland and further carbon sequestration.
Agricultural Practices and Carbon Sequestration Fact Sheet
A fact sheet summarizing the carbon sequestration potential of integrated soil-based agricultural practices and no-till methods.
Rationally Managed Pastures Stock More Carbon than No-Tillage Fields
A significant share of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) produced from agriculture comes from cattle farming. The reduction in GHG emissions from ruminants fed with grains has led some researchers to recommend such a diet as a means of mitigating emissions in the sector. A more accurate balance of emissions, however, must include the carbon (C) stocked by feed crops. Within the grain production system, no-tillage (NT) cultivation systems have a greater capacity to increase and store soil organic carbon…
Selectively logged Amazon forests play important role in climate
With careful management, selectively logged tropical Amazonian forests can recover their carbon stocks within a cutting cycle of 20 to 30 years, according to researchers. The findings show that sustainably logged tropical forests continue to play a key role in global carbon sequestration, with important implications for global climate.
