About This Project
Carbon can be removed from the atmosphere and stored in peat through numerous biogeochemical processes, potentially providing a net-cooling effect. The Congo Basin's peatlands store the carbon equivalent of 20 years of fossil fuel emissions from the USA, so protecting this ecosystem is vital. We seek to explore how people, plants and birds function and interact in this ecosystem to provide insight into the state of these peatlands and inform conservation policies accordingly.
