Replication data for: Yield and household consumption of Rhododendron arboreum as a fuelwood species in Eastern Nepal uri icon

abstract

  • Contribution of R. arboreum to total annual fuelwood consumption quantitatively assessed. Removal of biomass of R. arboreum was f ound to be higher than biomass addition, threatening the species distribution. Growth ring analysis revealed very slow increment in diameter and hence in biomass. Fuelwood harvesting, slow increment and slow growth identified as main causes of declining biomass
