Abstract

Carbon stored in several forest landscapes in Southeast Sulawesi such as the Jati stand on the People's Forest, Pine stands in Protected Forest, Mangrove Forest vegetation, Natural vegetation of urban forest, and Campus Forest show the weight of carbon stored per hectare different from one vegetation to another. The objective of this research is to know the biomass and the amount of carbon stored up (levels of the tree, pole, stakes), the lower plants, litter and nekromassa in various forest landscape in Southeast Sulawesi. Biomass is obtained through the use of allometric equations (plants on the surface), and measures the wet weight and dry weight (bottom plants, woody necromassa and non-woody). Furthermore, the estimated amount of carbon stored. The results showed Pinus stand (Pinus mercusii) carbon stored 65,992 tons ha-1, stand Teak (Tectona grandis) 36.213 tons ha-1, Mangrove vegetation (Bruguiera gymnorrhiza, Lumnitzera racemosa, Rhizophora sp, Sonneratia alba, and Avicennia alba) 68.12 tons ha-1, natural vegetation Forest City 50.01 tons ha-1, natural vegetation Forest Campus 98.18 tons ha-1. The availability of carbon estimation information in various forest landscapes can be used as supporting data for REDD + programs aimed at addressing climate issues.
