Abstract

Interest to carbon-sequestering and oxygen-producing functions of forest has risen considerably during last decades. Abovementioned functions of forest ecosystems
acquire special significance in pre-urban and urban forests. These forests perform not only stabilizing and protective functions, but also are a renewable resource.
Due to rapid development of modern technologies (bioenergy), the latter named
feature becomes more and more important. However, currently there is practically
no one scientifically based assessment of abovementioned functions of pre-urban
forests, especially in comparison with other regions and countries.
The main aim of this study was to assess and quantify carbon sequestration and
production of oxygen of selected parts of urban forests of Kyiv city and pre-urban
forests of Stockholm city, and to compare the results.
Within this study, techniques developed by P. Lakyda (computation of phytomass
and sequestered carbon) and N. Tshesnokov and V. Dolgosheev (estimation of
oxygen productivity of forests) were applied. Authors have encountered numerous
“compatibility problems” with the technique used and the initial datasets.
Nevertheless, majority of the problems were solved successfully, thus enabling
accomplishment of the main aim. This research is important as a test of
compatibility of different methodologies and datasets, and provides quantitative
estimation of carbon-sequestering and oxygen-producing functions of the studied
forests.
