Carbon Stocks and Sequestration by Urban Forests in the US
This week we will review a recent Paper by Nowak et al (2013) on carbon storage and sequestration by urban trees in the US. Nowak et al. offer a different perspective than provided by Pataki et al (2011) and McKinley et al (2012). We will review their assumptions, findings, and research design and discuss whether their study support their conclusions. We will discuss the implications of the study and the alternative hypotheses and conclusions provided by the other authors.
