 en Capability investigation of carbon sequestration in Artemisia aucheri check for this species in other resources Bioss

Abstract

Artemisia check for this species in other resources spp. is widespread Iranian rangelands, covering more than 50 % of land cover. The present study was conducted to estimate the amount of carbon sequestration in soil containing Artemisia aucheri check for this species in other resources at different soil depths (0–15 and 15–30 cm), as well as its organs (root, shoot and leaves) and some soil chemical and physical characteristics in the SalehAbad region, 41 km north of HajiAbad, Hormozgan, Iran. The results showed that soil with 0–15 cm depth had higher soil pH and moisture percentage, as well as lower nitrogen percentage and organic carbon percentage than soil at deeper depths. Soil samples from 0 to 15 cm depth had higher clay percentage. Multiple regression showed that nitrogen percentage and moisture percentage were the most effective traits contributing to carbon sequestration. Root and leaf plant tissues had higher and lower stored organic carbon, respectively. Overall, the results of this study indicated that the highest carbon sequestration was obtained at a soil depth of 0–15 cm and in the roots of A. aucheri in the SalehAbad region. Therefore, by recognizing the species that have more potential for carbon sequestration, as well as more resistance to environmental limits such as salinity and drought, and also to investigate the management factors affecting the sequestration process, regeneration and rehabilitation of rangeland can be followed in terms of carbon sequestration.
