  1. For all the forests, values are mean ± standard error. DBH stem diameter at breast height, N = 16, number of quadrats, AGB CS aboveground biomass carbon stocks, DI disturbance index (DI < 15%, least disturbed; DI = 15–20%, medium disturbed; and DI > 20%, highly disturbed). Different letters in the same column show statistically significant differences (Tukey’s Honestly Significant Test at P < 0.05)
