New publication of TmFO network

NewsPosted by Plinio Tue, December 20, 2016 15:43:33

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

EventsPosted by Plinio Thu, April 23, 2015 13:50:37
TmFO researchers involved in the Amazon will meet in Belém next week for a 2 day workshop. The main objectives are to start new analysis on timber volume recovery after logging and to go on with our research on the impact of logging on tree biodiversity. This meeting will be followed by a conference on forest degradation in the Amazon, 29-30 April, 2015, in Belém, jointly organized by Embrapa and Cirad with the support of the French Embassy.
