  • Biomass and carbon accumulation in Northern Bangladesh Eucalyptus
           plantations: Effects of stand structure and age

      Abstract: Abstract. Dey T, Islam MDA, Jubair SMR. 2022. Biomass and carbon accumulation in Northern Bangladesh Eucalyptus plantations: Effects of stand structure and age. Asian J For 6: 126-132. Eucalyptus plantations are a significant carbon sink as a fast growing species in Bangladesh, but little is known regarding biomass, carbon output, and dynamics with stand age. We, therefore, assessed the stand structure, biomass accumulation, carbon storage, and their changing patterns with age in Eucalyptus camaldulensis Dehnh. plantations in the northern part of Bangladesh in early 2021. Biomass and carbon stocks were estimated using the allometric models specific for E. camaldulensis from the biophysical tree parameters (i.e., height and DBH). We used the data from 45 sample plots (100 sq. m each) covering different age classes such as 2, 5, 7, 8, 11, 13, and 21 years. The aboveground, belowground, and total biomass and carbon significantly varied between stand ages (p<0.05). The highest aboveground, belowground, and total carbon stocks were observed at the age of 21 years, and the lowest was found at the age of 2 years. We observed a positive and strong relationship between total carbon and stand variables such as stand height, diameter at breast height, basal area, crown width, crown length, and bole height but a negative relationship with density. The mean annual increment of both biomass and carbon increased sharply up to seven years and then decreased. Despite having some ecological constraints, E. camaldulensis. accumulate a large amount of carbon from the atmosphere, perhaps aiding climate change mitigation.

  • Vertical distribution of soil properties and soil organic carbon in
           community managed forest of Siwalik Hill, Nepal

      Abstract: Abstract. Lamichhane U, Ghimire P. 2022. Vertical distribution of soil properties and soil organic carbon in community managed forest of Siwalik Hill, Nepal. Asian J For 6: 91-96. Nepal's Community Forestry (CF) approach is globally recognized as an innovative and successful approach to forest resource management. Shorea robusta Gaertn. is the dominant tree species of Nepal's forest which covers 19.28% of the total stem volume of the country's forest area. Soil represents a significant terrestrial Carbon (C) pool and can play a significant role in mitigating global warming. Therefore, analyzing soil physicochemical properties and Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) stock is essential because they are key parameters for evaluating land use management systems. The present study was conducted in the Durga Mai Community Forest (DMCF) of Makawanpur District, Nepal, to assess the vertical distribution of soil physicochemical properties and SOC stock. Soil samples within a 1 m profile in five depth layers (0-20 cm, 21-40 cm, 41-60 cm, 61-80cm, and 81-100 cm) were collected and analyzed for Bulk Density (BD), soil texture, soil pH, soil carbon content, Total Nitrogen (TN), Available Phosphorous (AP), Available Potassium (AK) and SOC stock. Sandy loam was the dominant soil textural class reported throughout the study area. Average BD, soil pH, TN, AP, and AK in the S. robusta forest's soil in 1 m soil profile depth were found to be 1.16 ±0.07 gmcm-3, 5.78 ±0.62, 0.14 ±0.04 %, 5.94 ±1.04 kgha-1, and 104.20 ±19.66 kgha-1, respectively. The results estimated 107.57 ±3.06 tha-1 of SOC stock in 1 m soil profile, with 0.93 ±0.21% average SOC content. Further, average TN, AP, and AK were found to be decreased with an increase in soil profile depths. Similarly, soil profile depths significantly affected SOC stock and soil properties like BD, soil pH, TN, AP, and AK.

  • Taxonomy, distribution and statistical ecology of black mildews fungi
           reported from Maharashtra state of India

      Abstract: Abstract. Dubey R, Moonambeth N, Pandey AD. 2022. Taxonomy, distribution and statistical ecology of black mildews fungi reported from Maharashtra state of India. Asian J For 6: 97-125. The Maharashtra state of India represents some of the best non-equatorial, tropical forests in the world and supports many endemic species of plants, animals, and microorganisms, especially in the Western Ghats, India. Consequently, a research project entitled "Foliicolous fungi of Maharashtra" was allotted by the Botanical Survey of India, Ministry of Environment, Forests, and Climate change, India, to carry out the mycological studies. As part of this project, constant studies were carried out on black mildew fungi of the state. The present studies offer a taxonomic account, distribution, and ecological parameters of 72 black mildews taxa collected from different areas of Maharashtra state of India. The present study provides 03 new records of fungi to India, 31 new host records to India, 40 new records of fungi to the Maharashtra state of India, and one new variety viz., Asterina jasmini Hansf. var. koyani var.nov., depicted by checklist and Figures. In addition, a comprehensive table containing information on location, date of collection, name of the collector, and new records are given for ready reference. During this study, Meliola was the dominant genus with 35 species, whereas Meliolina mollis was the dominant taxon obtained from a maximum of 5 collections. More than 90% of black mildew species are collected from the Western Ghats Districts. In diversity indices, Gini-Simpson's was 0.9818, and Shannon's was 4.1668. Pielou's evenness index was 0.9743, causing true diversity, calculated as an effective number of species (64), to be less than observed species richness (72).

  • Identification and characterization of traditional agroforestry practices
           and their socioeconomic roles in Dendi District, Central Ethiopia

      Abstract: Abstract. Humnessa T, Gebretsadik W, Negasa A. 2022. Identification and characterization of traditional agroforestry practices and their socioeconomic roles in Dendi District, Central Ethiopia. Asian J For 6: 83-89. This study was conducted in the Dendi District of Central Ethiopia in three kebele (smallest administration units in Ethiopia) to identify and characterize the existing traditional agroforestry practices and their contribution to household livelihood. Informal surveys were conducted through key informant interviews and physical observations, while formal surveys were conducted using structured questionnaires. Home gardens, scattered trees on cropland, scattered woody species on grazing land, live fencing, and rarely woodlots were traditional agroforestry practices identified in the area. Home gardens were found to be prevailing traditional agroforestry practices in the study area. Fifty-seven (57) perennial woody species and twenty-two (22) annual crops (including vegetables and crops) on the home garden, twelve (12) species of scattered trees on cropland, twenty-eight (28) woody species on grazing land, twenty-four (24) woody species on the live fence, and two (2) woody species on woodlots were planted and managed in the study area for several purposes. Except for woodlots, the majority of woody species in the existing traditional agroforestry were grouped under the Fabaceae family, and the majority of associated annual crops in home garden agroforestry were categorized under the Solanaceae family. Different tree management practices, such as branch pruning, coppicing, pollarding, and thinning, were undertaken by agroforestry practitioners to reduce negative interaction among components and maximize the overall products of the system.

  • Estimation of carbon stock and emission of community forests in Eastern
           Amhara, Ethiopia

      Abstract: Abstract. Biadgligne A, Gobezie T, Mohammed A, Feleke E. 2022. Estimation of carbon stock and emission of community forests in Eastern Amhara, Ethiopia. Asian J For 6: 74-82. Carbon emission resulting from deforestation and forest degradation contributes to climate change. Halting deforestation is, therefore, one strategy to mitigate the changing climate. As the global carbon market develops, an opportunity to halt deforestation can be contributed by community forests as a win-win solution for climate change mitigation and livelihood provision, yet knowing the carbon stock of the forest is important to enhance the bargaining power of the community to get carbon finance. Thus, a case study was conducted to quantify carbon stocks and emissions from three community forests (i.e., Asha-Guba, Jemely, and Beshilo) in Eastern Amhara, Ethiopia. Stratified systematic sample quadrate methods were used, and a total of 57 equally spaced nested square quadrats were laid for the measurement of carbon density. Carbon pools, including above-ground living biomass, dead wood, surface litter, belowground root biomass, soil organic carbon, and harvested wood product, were accounted for the estimation of site-level carbon density (t ha-1) and carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emission. There was high variability in the estimated mean carbon density and CO2e emission across the three community forests. The highest carbon density was recorded in the Asha-Guba community forest with 124.27 ± 8.29 t ha-1, followed by Jemely and Beshilo forests with 91.24 ± 3.18 t ha-1 and 73.55 ± 3.13 t ha-1, respectively. The largest proportion (59-63%) of carbon was stored in the soil pool, followed by the above-ground biomass (27-32%), while that in dead organic matter was insignificant. The community forests currently stored total carbon stocks of 57,612.14 ± 13.81ton (210,860.43 CO2e). To ensure the sustainable management of the forests, long-term finance and investment must be introduced urgently.

      Abstract: Abstract. Yeasmin S, Islam KN, Jashimuddin M, Rahman MM, Jiku AC. 2022. Effectiveness of co-management in reducing forest dependency and improving socioeconomics of forest dependent people in Bangladesh. Asian J For 6: 55-63. Co-management of forest protected areas (PA) has started its journey in Bangladesh intending to conserve the forest resources by creating alternative income-generating activities for the forest-dependent people. This study was designed to assess the effectiveness of co-management initiatives in improving socioeconomic status as well as reduction of peoples’ forest dependency at Dudpukuria-Dhopachari Wildlife Sanctuary (DDWS), Bangladesh. A total 142 respondents consisting of 71 co-management project-supported people (treatment) and 71 local people (control) having similar socioeconomic conditions without any project support were surveyed randomly through a semi-structured questionnaire. The Difference in Differences (DiD) method was applied to assess the effectiveness of this program. Results revealed that there was an insignificant difference between co-management participants and non-participants in the case of total income. A similar trend was also observed for total forest resource extraction by both parties. However, the monthly income of co-management participants from secondary occupations was found to increase by USD 16.46. In contrast, monthly fuel wood extraction of the co-management participants was reduced equivalent to USD 2.21. Studied socioeconomics parameters were more or less similar for both parties. We conclude that the co-management interventions in DDWS resulted in significant differences in terms of socioeconomic conditions and forest dependency of local forest-dependent communities.

  • Agroforestry potential of Kanchanpur District, Nepal using remote sensing
           and Geographic Information System

      Abstract: Abstract. Subedi PB, Mahara S, Paudel S , Bhandari J, Thagunna RS. 2023. Agroforestry potential of Kanchanpur District, Nepal using remote sensing and Geographic Information System. Asian J Agric 7: 65-74. Researchers are interested in agroforestry because of its potential for reducing poverty and land degradation, mitigating climate change, and improving food security. This study aimed to determine the land potential for agroforestry in Kanchanpur District, Nepal, using Geographic Information System modeling concepts and a variety of ancillary (soil fertility) and satellite data (Digital Elevation Model, wetness, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, and Land Use Land Cover) sets. It was accomplished by logically integrating various thematic layers in the GIS domain. For Kanchanpur District of Nepal's Sudurpaschim Province, agroforestry suitability maps showed that 76.14 percent was very high suitable, 3.12 percent was highly suitable, 13.89 percent was medium, 5.67 percent was low suitable, and 1.15 percent was very low suitable. The use of remote sensing and GIS to find suitable land for agroforestry have significant impacts, which will significantly aid in the study of agroforestry practices and the estimation of crucial factors for optimal productivity. Such analyses and results will undoubtedly assist agroforestry policymakers and planners to put it into practice and expanding in new areas. GIS modeling has enormous potential for land resource mapping, eventually contributing to the benefit of rural poor people, especially farmers, and helping in ensuring food and environmental security and a sustainable livelihood.
