Tropical forest conservation, forest fires, ecosystem carbon cycling, climate change

Dr. Paulo Brando is an expert on tropical ecology whose research is aimed at (1) identifying ecological thresholds beyond which global changes cause abrupt, prolonged degradation of terrestrial ecosystems by stressing, disturbing, and killing forests and (2) quantifying ecological & climatological boundaries for tropical agricultural expansion and intensification. His research combines field manipulation experiments, statistical and dynamic vegetation models, and remote sensing.
