Hosted by the University of Alberta
The U of A is displaying findings from an 8-year project that looked at the role of trees in agroforestry systems and of the application of biochar and manure compost to agricultural soils in affecting carbon sequestration (storage in the soil and vegetation), carbon stability and greenhouse gas emissions has been studied.
