Abstract

Climate problems are becoming more and more frequent. Without forests to regulate the climate, human race will not be able to survive. In this paper, a mathematical model was proposed to calculate various values of forests, classify forests, and determine how forests should be managed. In order to determine how forests should be managed, this paper uses the CO2FIX model to calculate the amount of carbon dioxide that can be sequestered over time in the Greater Khingan Range of China forest by calculating the amount of carbon sequestered by organisms, soil, and wood products respectively. To study the effects of different management practices, this paper makes a comparison between anthropogenic management and natural growth of the forest and that the proposed model is most effective for CO2 sequestration when used the upper layer thinning method.
