What forest absorbs the most carbon?

    This very complex study (http://www.pnas.org/content/98/26/14784.full) done by the University of California, San Diego studies the presence of carbon forest sinks. It was found that the most dense sinks reside in the Northern Hemisphere (Canada, Russia, and the United States). The forests of Russia lead the way with harboring the most amount of carbon.

    Because every forest is adherently a part of the carbon cycle, as all trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen into the atmosphere. So, logic tells us that the forest that absorbs the most carbon dioxide is the largest forest as well.

    So, the answer of course is the Amazon Rain Forest.
