    About This Project

    How do large mammals affect forest carbon in tropical forests? Quantifying the effects of wildlife on forest carbon is fundamental to mitigating climate change. Based on a long-term fencing experiment where I have excluded large mammals for more than 12 years, I will measure the effects of large mammals on forest (soil and plant) carbon in tropical forests of Brazil. My results will be important to estimate the value of tropical mammals' services on forest carbon.
