In the final post of a four-part series, forest carbon scientist Bronson Griscom and a team from The Nature Conservancy go deep into the Amazon frontier and find a remnant of healthy rainforest with an abundant array of plant and animal life. View the videos and come along on the adventure!
Can tropical forests be logged sustainably and still maintain their incredibly rich biodiversity — and benefits to people? A new study published in the journal Conservation Letters provides evidence that, with smart forest management, the answer can be “yes.”
In this third post of a four-part series, Bronson Griscom, Ph.D. and team, venture deeper into the forests of the Xingu River region of Brazil’s Amazon frontier and begin to see what they came for.
In the second of a four-part series, Nature Conservancy forest carbon scientist Bronson Griscom and his team hike through degraded areas of forest on the edge of ranchlands. And he wonders: is it too late for forest restoration in Brazil’s Amazon frontier?
In the first of a four-part series, Bronson Griscom, a Conservancy forest carbon scientist, brings us along on a trek through northern Brazil’s Amazon frontier, where patches of remaining rainforest – interspersed with cattle ranches – may hold the seeds for the future. Check out the video clips to join in the adventure.
It’s time to get in the car with Forest Carbon, put the roof down, turn on the ignition, throw on some Chris De Burgh and ease on out onto the open road.
Relationships take work, and this one takes the cake. But it’s worth it because this is really monumental. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Forest Carbon is the first big chance to measure one of nature’s benefits with a single elegant unit of measurement (carbon) that circulates around the world, just like the dollar.
I have a confession: I’ve fallen in love with Forest Carbon.
