Abstract: The present investigation on "Assessment of growth variation and carbon sequestration potential of different species of Bamboo" was carried out at ASPEE College of Horticulture and Forestry, NAU, Navsari. The present experiment comprised of 15 species of bamboo viz. , Dendrocalamus' asper, Bambusa balcooa , Bambusa tulda, Dendrocalamus stocks ii, Bambusa nutans , Bambusa vulgaris (Green), Bambusa vulgaris (Yellow), Gigantochloa atroviolacea (Java Black . Bamboo), Bambusa bambos, Dendrocalamus strictus, Bambusa polymorpha, Sehizostachyum pergracile, Meloeanna bambusoides, Bambusa jantiana and Schizostachyum dullooa. This experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) comprising of fifteen species of bamboo as treatment and three replications. The observations on various morphological variations, biomass and carbon sequestration were recorded. In case of thick walled bamboos, significantly maximum culm height, clump height, clump girth, fresh weight , of leaves and branches, dry weight of leaves and branches, fresh weight of culm, dry weight of culm, fresh weight of total culm, dry weight of total culm and dry weight of total clump were recorded maximum in (T6 : Bambusa vulgaris (Green». While culm diameter, internodal length, number of culms per clump and leaf width were recorded significantly higher in (T 9 : Bambusa bambos, Til : Bambusa polymorpha, T 8 : Gigantoehloa atroviolaeea (Java Black -bamboo) and T2 : Bambusa baleooa, respectively). The leaf length and leaf area were noted significantly maximum in T2 : Bambusa baleooa. Moreover in case of thin walled bamboos, significantly maximum culm height, clump height, fresh weight of leaves and branches, dry weight of leaves and branches and dry weight of clump were registered in TI4 : Bambusa jantiana . • Whereas culm diameter, fresh weight of leaves and branches, fresh weight of culm, dry weight of culm, fresh weight of total culm and dry weight of total culm were recorded maximum in T 12 : Sehizostaehyum pergraeile. The clump girth, leaf length, leaf width and leaf area were noted significantly maximum in Til : Meloeanna bambusoides. The internodal length and number of culms per clump were reported maximum in T I5 : Sehizostaehyum dullooa. The carbon sequestration per culm and clump of thick walled bamboos were recorded significantly maximum in (T 6: Bambusa vulgaris (Green» while in case of thin walled bamboos, significantly maximum carbon sequestration per culm and clump were recorded in T 12 : Sehizostaehyum pergraeile and
