This is the second of two lectures this week.
Tropical forests, deforestation and climate change (83 MB)
This lecture gives an overview of our research in tropical forests. It starts by examining the patterns and causes of tropical deforestation, and the significance of this in the global carbon cycle. Next it explores how climate change may affect tropical forests. For the second part is illustrates how scientists explore how tropical forests respond to degradation and climate change, showcasing work being done by the Ecosystems programme at Oxford University, around the world.
