Advancing Tropical Forest Restoration for a Sustainable Future
November 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Tropical reforestation has been recognized as an important tool in combating climate change as young forests can potentially take copious amounts of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. Yet restoring forests on infertile or degraded soils, the soils most likely targeted for restoration, can be particularly challenging. Smart Reforestation® is about planting the right trees in the right place, at the right time, and for the right reason. This talk will discuss how results from research on ecosystem services at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute’s Agua Salud Project have helped to advance Smart Reforestation and sustainable land management.
This lecture is part of the Environmental Studies Program Hoch Cunningham Environmental Lecture Series.
