Activity Description

2003  

  • Presentations on environmental conservation and hands-on activities engaging elementary school students

    Dr. Ted Feldpausch (Cornell University) presented several talks to elementary school at the community center in Jurena, MT. Presentations focused on environmental conservation and activities developed in the Rohden managed forest and at the settlement Vale do Amanhacer. Students were engaged in hands-on activities organized in conjunction with Pro-nature, Juruena Prefeitura, and local schools. Participants planted trees in the new city park, partially destroyed by illegal fire.

  • Juruena ExpoAmbiente
    Science fair held in Jurena, Mato Grosso, Brazil, in June 2003

    Dr. Mark S. Johnson, from Cornell University, coordinated with LBA participants at the Federal University of Mato Grosso (UFMT) the organization of educational materials addressing carbon and nutrient fluxes for distribution to students and lay public during this event.

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?

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-Q4a - How will the composition and quantity of nutrients and organic matter entering and being processed within streams be altered under different land-use change scenarios?
