Title : Characteristics of soil under sago stand and carbon content in Ambon small island for climate change handling


Sago (Metroxylon spp) is a source of food from wetlands. This plant plays a role in storing water and carbon which is very useful in dealing with climate change. If this plant is widely converted for other uses, such as agricultural expansion, it will cause disturbances in its function as a water and carbon store. In terms of national development in the short term, it is certainly more profitable to expand rice fields. However, in terms of regional development for the long term it is not necessarily profitable because it can trigger climate change that is getting worse. The results showed that the soil characteristics of the research site were Gleisol hydric (Typic hydraquents), District Gleisol (Typic endoaquepts), Gleisol fluvik (Fluventic endoaquepts) and Cambisol and Cambisol oxic (Typic dystrudepts). In addition, the results of the measurement of carbon stocks in the small island of Ambon (Molluccas Province) obtained an average carbon of 47 tons/ha consisting of sago seedling, sapling, poles and trees levels of 176, 77, 89, 51 trees/ha, respectively. For comparison, the carbon stock in Ambangah River (West Kalimantan Province) is 42 tons/ha consisting of sago seedling, sapling, polishing, trees respectively 2, 3, 107, 72 trees/ha and in Sentani (Jayapura City) and Jayapura Regency (Papua Province) 53 tons/ha consisting of sago seedling, sapling and polishing levels, trees 399, 81, 23 trees/ha, respectively. This situation indicates that the carbon content of sago is highly dependent on the composition of the growth strata of sago and other tree species in it.


Dr. Ir. Gun Mardiatmoko, MP studied forestry management (S1 and S2) at the Faculty of Forestry at Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta and graduated from the doctoral program (S3) at USAMV, Bucharest, Romania. He is a lecturer at the Department of Forestry, Faculty of Agriculture, Pattimura University in Ambon from 1986 until now. So far, her work activities include teaching students, research and community service. The results of research and writing of books have been carried out a lot and details of their work can be found through Google searches. In general, his research focuses on handling climate change through mitigation and adaptation.
