  1. The values indicated with the symbol (a) and (b) are derived from [20] and [21], respectively. The table also reports the percentage difference of total AGB using different spatial dataset for each biomass reference data and the Fuzzy Numerical index. The Fuzzy Numerical index is computed by comparing each map with the NBS reference map (NBS plots + NBS LC) at 1 Km resolution
