Carbon Dynamics

 
         CD-Q3 - What are the relative contributions of fluxes from natural and disturbed ecosystems to the net Amazônia-wide flux?
         CD-Q3b - How does selective logging change the storage and cycling of carbon in forests?
         CD-Q3c - What factors (biologically mediated, land use history, soil properties, etc.) control the rate of carbon sequestration in biomass and soils of regrowing forest?
         CD-Q3d - What portion of the Amazônia–wide carbon flux is from fire? How do ecosystems recover from fire? What are the relations between land management and fire occurrence/frequency?
 

Land Cover and Land Use Change

 
         LC-Q3 - What is the area of forest that is affected by selective logging each year? How does the intensity of selective logging influence forest ecosystem function, thus altering forest regrowth and flammability?
