Carbon Sequestrarion & Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation

Because boreal forest is the second largest biome in the world making up nearly 30 percent of the planet's forested area (of which approximately 25 percent is natural), and stores about 20 percent of the earth's carbon (FAO, 2015). Along with the tropics, the boreal forest is both a major depository and at times a major source of carbon.
