Abiotic Factors as Drivers of Net Primary Productivity of Woody Species in The Subtropical Forest Patches of Manipur, North East India

Chongtham Sanjita, Th. Binoy Singh


Mass ratio of resources, soil nutrients and other abiotic factors like temperature and moisture influenced to a great extent on the existed variability in carbon accumulation and sequestration potential among species. In the present investigation, AGNPP was limited by multiple nutrients and environmental factors like temperature and moisture. The importance of the small patchy area in carbon sequestration and their role in regional carbon balance under the influence of abiotic factors including soil resources was undertaken. Considering the importance of resources and abiotic factors in the carbon sequestration potential of forest ecosystem in low latitudinal belt, while framing the mitigation mechanism of climate change, emphasis should be given on the enhancement of soil fertility to improve resource capture prioritized in such region and further study on traits related with aboveground components should be emphasized in the study of carbon sequestration in the forest ecosystem of such region.
