Discover the latest available knowledge on ways to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere!

The problem of quickly mounting CO2 emissions in the fast-developing Latin American region was addressed in a symposium held in Piracicaba, Brazil, in June 2004. Carbon Sequestration in Soils of Latin America presents the latest available knowledge in soil C sequestration and improved land and soil management which can also lead to other positive effects, such as greater fertility of soil and higher crop yields. This text, in easy-to-understand language, comprehensively reviews ways to best transform various soils from being a source of carbon released into the atmosphere to become a sink for carbon absorption.

Carbon Sequestration in Soils of Latin America presents a full-rounded explanation of this information in four sections. The first section gives detailed background information about the region, its climate, and the differing soils, along with basic concepts behind the science. The second section describes recommended management practices and rates of soil C sequestration. The third section thoroughly deals with methods of assessment of soil C. The last section provides a summary of recommendations for further research and development. The book is extensively referenced and contains numerous figures, tables, and photographs.

Topics in Carbon Sequestration in Soils of Latin America include:
soil eco-regions and principal biomes of Latin America
soil carbon stock in principal ecosystems of Latin America
rates of carbon sequestration in different eco-regions for predominant land use and management
the role of the Amazon region in mitigating climate change
the importance of tropical savannas of Latin America in mitigating global warming
innovative methods of assessment of soil carbon pool
trading carbon credits
designing pilot soil carbon sequestration projects
potential of soil carbon sequestration in Latin America
priorities and recommendations for future research

Carbon Sequestration in Soils of Latin America is a comprehensive, essential resource for land managers, policymakers, educators, students, and researchers.
