Science Questions:

Carbon Dynamics:

        CD-Q2 - How do biological processes such as mortality and recruitment or succession following land use change influence the net annual carbon balance for different land cover and land use types?
        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?
