The first mapping of carbon recovery in Amazonian forests following
emissions released by commercial logging activities has been published
in the journal eLife. The findings suggest that, in some of the forests disturbed by
logging, surviving trees may be more reliable for storing carbon
emissions than newly 'recruited' trees (juveniles that naturally
regenerate in the logged forests).
The title of the paper is : Carbon recovery dynamics following disturbance by selective logging in Amazonian forests. the paper is available on this link: https://elifesciences.org/content/5/e21394

TmFO will hold a session entitled "Managed
Tropical Forests, towards a better future?" at the Annual Conference of
the Society for Tropical Ecology, focusing on "Resilience of Tropical
Ecosystems: Future challenges and opportunities." The conference will run
from 7th to 10th April, 2015 in Zurich, Switzerland.
The session will notably explore importance
of managed tropical forests in providing future goods and environmental
services. While most of our understanding of tropical forests ecology arises
from old-growth undisturbed forests, the functioning of managed forests remains
hardly explored. Monitoring of managed forests is important for myriad reasons,
including the need to understand their roles in the global carbon cycle and the
trade-offs between environmental impacts and human benefits. This session aims
notably to explore current advances and insights in our understanding of:
- post-logging forest functioning ( biomass
, diversity recovery )
- provision of environmental services
(biodiversity, carbon, watershed) of MTF
- vulnerability /adaptation to climate
change and/or fire of MTF
