Plants with high carbon capture capacity
The importance of plants with high carbon capture capacity by Armando Maravilla.
Plants play a vital role in climate change. The ecosystem services they provide are diverse, and one of them is the ability to capture carbon from the environment.
Vegetation helps mitigate carbon dioxide emissions through the process of photosynthesis. However, the amount of gasses they can capture varies depending on the species and their life form.
Although all plants perform this function, some species stand out for their high carbon coefficient.
