Tschakert: Figure 7: Total system C (in t C ha -1 ) in 21 fields in the Old Peanut Basin

Graph of soil and biomass carbon contents of 21 sampled fields
This graph is reproduced from the French-Wolof carbon measurement manual put together at the end of the research and distributed in each of the three communities. It depicts the final calculations of total system carbon for the 21 fields measured during this phase of the study, in tonnes of carbon per hectare.
