Plants’ ability to stock carbon ceased during the 2015–2016 El Niño, as temperatures skyrocketed and trees died.
Secas e enchentes alteraram radicalmente a agricultura familiar, mas lideranças femininas estão encontrando soluções para si e suas comunidades.
Borneo’s logged forests are buzzing with life and have unrealized conservation potential.
Droughts and floods have radically altered family farming, but women leaders are finding solutions for themselves and their communities.
A mega-experiment in Brazil will evaluate how tropical rain forests absorb carbon as emissions increase.
Undisturbed tropical rain forests are experiencing more frequent droughts, but the ecosystems are isolated and difficult to assess. Scientists are using remote sensing to expand the depth and scope of monitoring efforts.
Researchers link vulnerability to “atmospheric drought” associated with climate change.
Los bosques son “esencialmente sistemas de aire acondicionado” gracias a procesos biofísicos como la evapotranspiración y la rugosidad del dosel forestal.
Forests are “essentially air-conditioning systems” thanks to biophysical processes like evapotranspiration and canopy roughness.
A team of researchers in Brazil and the United States uncovered the importance of the mechanism of oxidation—a process with the potential to affect climate and precipitation across the tropics.
