Based on the spatial mathematical model of global carbon dioxide cycle in the biosphere calculated absorption of carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels, including deforestation and soil erosion in Latin America and the world. Calculations of the effects of restrictions in CO 2 emissions based on different scenarios of the Kyoto Protocol to the UN Framework Convention on climate stabilization showed that ecosystems of Costa Rica absorb atmospheric CO 2 more than other countries in the region, and industrial emissions from its territory almost equal absorption.
