This publication is the result of a project carried out by INBAR’s Bamboo Construction Task Force, in collaboration with Ecoinvent Association and the University of Zurich. It provides datasets for the life cycle of various bamboo-based construction materials.
Bamboos are considered very hardy plants, although they do, from time to time, suffer devastation from diseases. Bamboos are now increasingly being grown in plantations, and this necessitates increased vigilance against disease attacks, and preparedness for effective and rapid control if the attack occurs. Recognizing this, high priority on gathering available information on diseases of […]
While there are many international guidelines for forest carbon assessment, very little information exists on measuring the carbon sequestration potential of bamboo. Fast growing, with a high rate of carbon storage and a wide spread across the tropics and subtropics, understanding the dynamics of carbon cycle in the bamboo forest ecosystem is critically important for […]
A report written by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), INBAR and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The study broadly aims at establishing a pilot model for an integrated approach of remote sensing and GIS, and tests its utility in Mozambique for livelihoods development. The information from this report can be […]
El “Manual técnico de la caña guayaquil: sistematización de experiencias en la región Piura”, dividido en 7 secciones que recoge las experiencias, vivencias y lecciones aprendidas en sus distintas fases de producción iniciando desde la propagación, manejo silvicultural, aprovechamiento, preservado y usos de la especie más utilizada en la Región de Piura que es la […]
Mapping the spatial distribution of bamboo is necessary for biodiversity conservation, resource evaluation and ecosystem service management. This study produced a contemporary bamboo map of Madagascar for the year 2017, using 30m spatial resolution imagery. This is the first remote sensing-based bamboo resources map of its kind for Madagascar, which possesses the richest bamboo species […]
