ITMN Seminar #13 with Dr. David Galbraith: How does sensitivity to climate change vary across Amazon forests? Insights from ecophysiology, forest dynamics, remote sensing and modelling.
Speaker: Dr. David Galbraith
Abstract: There is a pressing need to better understand and predict the impacts of climate change on Amazon forests, given their important role in the Earth System. In this talk, I present new results that reveal how the sensitivity of Amazon forests to climate stressors varies across the Basin, drawing upon new plant functional trait data collection, forest inventory data analyses, remote sensing and ecosystem modelling.
