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
