Table 1 Area and AGC stocks in 2008, and mean values of projected AGC sequestration over 40 years for six land cover types: YSF (≤20 years), MSF (20 to 60 years), old SF (60 to 100 years), OGF (>100 years, arbitrarily set), pasture, and crops.

Carbon gains for old SF and OGF are not shown, because they cannot be estimated accurately. Values of net carbon assume zero deforestation of SFs.
