MetadataShow full item record
The study, “Species Diversity, Above and Below Ground Biomass, and Carbon Stock Assessments of Selected Mangrove Forests in Iloilo City, Philippines” by Dr. Resurreccion Sadaba and Allen Grace Niego of the University of the Philippines Visayas (UPV) was one of six researches presented at the Regional Research Utilization Forum held at the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Region 6. The study has also shown that it is possible to build low-emission alternatives to develop economic resilience and sustainability projects at a minimal cost. It determined the diversity of mangroves and quantified the amount of above- and below-ground biomass and carbon stored among the selected sites of mangrove forests, which included eight sites in four barangays of this city.
