Participants in a workshop hosted by the University of Wyoming’s Wyoming Reclamation & Restoration Center examine vegetation near Gillette. A University of Wyoming College of Business researcher has helped quantify the economic value of biodiversity in grasslands for the purpose of carbon storage.

Grasslands’ carbon storage value quantified

Ability to measure economic value of biodiversity for enhancing carbon storage could help in making land management decisions.

When grasslands feature a wide array of plant species, they provide a variety of benefits for people and animals, including enhanced carbon storage capacity that can be quantified economically, according to a new scientific paper co-written by a University of Wyoming researcher.

The ability to measure the economic value of biodiversity for enhancing carbon storage could help in making decisions about land management, the paper, published in the journal
