“Forest-climate interactions in an era of global change”
Forests play important roles in climate regulation. Global change
pressures—including climate change, deforestation, pollution, hunting,
and the spread of invasive species—are affecting forests worldwide.
Such changes threaten biodiversity and may exacerbate climate change.
Understanding and predicting how forests are changing provides critical
support for biodiversity conservation and climate protection. Dr.
Anderson-Teixeira leads the Ecosystems and Climate Initiative for the
Center for Tropical Forest Science (CTFS) - Forest Global Earth
Observatory (ForestGEO). CTFS-ForestGEO is the world's only forest
monitoring network making standardized measurements in all the
world's major forest biomes and is strategically poised for monitoring,
understanding, and predicting forest responses to global change. This
talk will introduce the network and cover some of Dr. AndersonTeixeira’s research aimed at understanding how global change is altering
forests around the world and how changes to forest ecosystems will
either mitigate or exacerbate climate change.
