Table 7 Comparison of biomass and area statistics for the main LC classes of Uganda

From: Mapping biomass with remote sensing: a comparison of methods for the case study of Uganda

  AGB Ref. values (Mg/ha) Total AGB (Tg) Area (Km2 × 1000)
LC class NBS Plots IPCC Tier1 NBS Plots + NBS LC IPCC Tier1 + NBS LC NBS LC GLC2000
Forest 35 - 223 115 - 310 294 1279 49.3 67.3
Shrubland 14 70 14 98 14.2 49.2
Grassland 8 2 - 6 47 31 51.2 15.8
Agricolture 11 10 112 84 84.7 70.7
  1. For each LC class, the comparison is performed between the NBS and the IPCC Tier 1 biomass reference values (left columns), between the total AGB estimates of Uganda obtained by applying the NBS and IPCC reference values to the NBS LC map (central columns), and between the area mapped by the NBS LC and the GLC2000 maps (right columns)
