    Post-doc at the University of Brasilia (UnB). His research focuses on soil carbon and nutrient dynamics under different uses in sites of selective logging at FLONA Tapajós.

  • Lydia Olander
    Post-doc at the University of Brasilia. She worked with Telles on nutrient losses from canopies following logging. Results are being crossed with remotely sensed variables.

Activity Description

2003  

  • Biogeochemical changes associated with the establishment and maintenance of agroecosystems Workshop

    This LBA workshop was organized by Professors Mercedes Bustamante (UnB) and Jerry Melillo (WHRC). During the workshop there was a presentation by Greg Asner (Stanford University) regarding the results of the ND-10 group, former collaborative project of Asner and Bustamante. The workshop was held at the University of Brasília (UnB), November 2-4, 2003.

Science Questions:

Carbon Dynamics:

        CD-Q3b - How does selective logging change the storage and cycling of carbon in forests?

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?

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?
        ND-Q4 - How do changes in land use and climate alter the stocks, processes and fluxes of dissolved and particulate organic matter, nutrients, and trace gases from the uplands across the riparian zones and floodplains and down the channels of river corridors?
