Science Questions:

Carbon Dynamics:

        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?

Land Cover and Land Use Change:

        LC-Q1 - What are the rates and mechanisms of forest conversion to agricultural land uses, and what is the relative importance of these land uses?
        LC-Q2 - At what rate are converted lands abandoned to secondary forests; what is the fate of these converted lands, and what are the overall dynamic patterns of land conversion and abandonment?
        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?

Nutrient Dynamics and Surface Water Chemistry:

        ND-Q1 - How do stocks, cycling rates and budgets of carbon and important elements nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and aluminum change under different land covers and land uses?
        ND-Q2 - Are nutrients major factors that control the rates of regrowth and carbon accumulation in abandoned pastures and regrowing secondary forests?
