Secas e enchentes alteraram radicalmente a agricultura familiar, mas lideranças femininas estão encontrando soluções para si e suas comunidades.
Selectively Logged Forests Are Not Broken
Borneo’s logged forests are buzzing with life and have unrealized conservation potential.
How Climate Change Is Affecting Women in the Amazon
Droughts and floods have radically altered family farming, but women leaders are finding solutions for themselves and their communities.
Testing the Resilience of the Amazon
A mega-experiment in Brazil will evaluate how tropical rain forests absorb carbon as emissions increase.
Monitoring Moisture from Afar
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.
Tree Mortality Risk Surges in Australian Rain Forests
Researchers link vulnerability to “atmospheric drought” associated with climate change.
Los beneficios climáticos de los bosques van mucho más allá del secuestro de carbono
Los bosques son “esencialmente sistemas de aire acondicionado” gracias a procesos biofísicos como la evapotranspiración y la rugosidad del dosel forestal.
Climate Benefits of Forests Go Far Beyond Carbon Sequestration
Forests are “essentially air-conditioning systems” thanks to biophysical processes like evapotranspiration and canopy roughness.
Pollution Is Disrupting Rain Cycles in the Amazon
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.
Deforestation Is Flooding West African Coasts
The lack of trees is contributing to increased rainfall along the coast of southwest Africa, where communities are already vulnerable to flash flooding.
