How resilient are tropical rainforests to anthropogenic climate change?

Lead Research Organisation: University of Cambridge
Department Name: Plant Sciences


Understanding the physiological response of canopies to drought is key to modelling the resilience of Amazon rainforests to climate change. By regularly laser scanning forest over two years, a clear picture of canopy dynamics will emerge. By linking this remotely sensed data with eddy covariance measurements of productivity and other field-based measurements, scientific understanding of forest resilience will be advanced.
