Quantification of Carbon Sequestration Benefits of Restoring Degraded Montane Meadows

A study of the carbon-sequestration capability of restored meadows compared to degraded meadows indicates that restored meadows contain twice as much total carbon as degraded meadows; on average approximately 40 tons more carbon per acre. Virtually all of the additional carbon in restored meadows occurs in the soil, and is thus protected from loss via grazing, haying, wildfire, etc.
