Due to landscape fragmentation, Brazil’s rainforests are releasing more carbon dioxide than previously thought

7 octubre 2014

Because of the deforestation of tropical rainforests in Brazil, significantly more carbon has been lost than was previously assumed. The effect of the degradation has been underestimated in fragmented forest areas, since it was hitherto not possible to calculate the loss of the biomass at the forest edges and the higher emission of carbon dioxide.
