ABSTRACT
Trees are carbon reservoir on earth. In nature, photosynthesis is the unique mechanism through which carbon flows in ecosystems and utilize by plants in the form of CO2. Worldwide, we are losing the number of trees every year; the reasons are known to everybody which leads to the climate change globally. From the available data of tree's girth and height we estimated the carbon storage by non-destructive or allometric method. We estimated the carbon storage in 25 species belongs to Gujarat, India. The maximum carbon storage in Tamarindus indica 55.95 tC followed by 44.81 tC in Terminalia arjuna is concluded. The lowest carbon storage value estimated in Emblica officinalis 1.77tC.

    Coastal hypoxia (<1.42 ml L-1; 62.5 μM; 2mgL-1, approx. 30% oxygen saturation) occurs seasonally in many estuaries, fjords, and along open coasts subject to upwelling or excessive riverine nutrient input, and permanently in some isolated seas and marine basins. Underlying causes of hypoxia...
