This figure shows the result of deducting cubic root–transformed agricultural rents (ARs) of the crops replacing forests under 4 different scenarios (A, B, C, and D with corresponding agricultural rents AR1, AR2, AR3, and AR4) to the cubic root TEV based on the market price of carbon (TEVm)—i.e., TEV1/3 –AR1/3. Error bars indicate the 2.5th and 97.5th percentiles of the uncertainty distribution of outcomes.
