Permanent Plot Method for Biomass Carbon

Long-term monitoring of selected carbon pools in the land-use strata would require adoption of the "permanent plot" technique (refer to Chapter 10). The technique enables periodical measurement and monitoring of carbon pools leading to calculation of rates of growth or decline in a carbon pool. These plots should be located in a way that facilitates periodic visits over a number of years or even decades. The permanent plots must be located using permanent markers and landmarks on the ground as well as backed by the GPS readings. The locations of shrub and herb plots as well as points of soil sampling should be marked on the maps, along with their GPS readings. It is always desirable to have larger plots for adopting the "permanent plot" technique.
