A peer-reviewed paper submitted by Mr. John O. Niles, on behalf of the Tropical Forest Group, addresses the issues of monitoring and estimating tropical forest carbon stocks.  The paper has tabular information with multiple estimates of total forest carbon stocks for many developing countries.  The IPCC guidelines (Tier 1) are used for one of the models, but the authors also use other models.
