      Tropical forest soil warmed in experiments to levels consistent with end-of-century temperature projections released 55 percent more CO2 than control plots, exposing a previously underestimated.   Tropical forests have been one of Earth's best defenses against rising carbon dioxide levels. The trees suck carbon from the atmosphere as they grow, and researchers estimate that, despite ongoing deforestation, tropical forests hold more carbon than humanity has emitted over the past 30 years by burning coal, oil, and natural gas. But scientists have worried that the ability of tropical.

During this entire period it far exceeded the ppm maximum level for the , yr before industrialization (Petit et al. ). Since all tropical regions have experienced strong warming.   Protecting tropical forests is essential for achieving the climate goals of the Paris Agreement. Global Forest Watch Climate recently released estimated carbon dioxide emissions associated with the tropical tree cover loss data, and the numbers demonstrate more of what we already tropical tree cover loss continues at the current rate, it will be nearly .

US $ ISSN ‐ The rationale behind this theme issue was to bring together a collection of papers from a wide range of disciplines to focus attention on the fate of the world's tropical forests . Moist tropical forests account for a substantial amount of global plant productivity. There are indications that the productivity of many of these forests is limited by low phosphorus availability. This has led to suggestions that moist tropical forests may be constrained in their ability to increase their growth rates in response to an.

However, there have been surprisingly few efforts to synthesize cutting-edge science in the area of tropical forest interaction with atmospheric change. At a time when our global atmosphere is undergoing a period of rapid change, both in terms of climate and in the cycling of essential elements such as carbon and nitrogen, a thorough and up-to.

Tropical forests represent the world's most biodiverse ecosystems and play a key role in hydrology, carbon storage, and exchange. Many of the human-induced pressures these regions are facing, e.g. fragmentation and deforestation, have been widely reported and well documented. However, there have been surprisingly few efforts to synthesize cutting-edge science in the area of tropical forest.

Tropical forests represent the world's most biodiverse ecosystems and play a key role in hydrology, carbon storage and exchange. Many of the human-induced pressures these regions are facing, e.g. fragmentation and deforestation, have been widely reported and well documented.

However, there have been surprisingly few efforts to synthesize cutting-edge science in the area of tropical forest. Tropical forests are hotspots for global change, and play a major contribution to global biodiversity, human livelihoods and planetary functioning.

As such they are a nexus for scientific and policy discussions about global change and its impacts, and how to mitigate, manage and adapt to these impacts. This Specialty Section is focused on these exciting and important.

The quantity of carbon cycling each year through soils worldwide is up to 10 times greater than human-generated greenhouse gas emissions.

We present a personal perspective on the highlights of the Theme Issue 'Tropical forests and global atmospheric change'. We highlight the key findings on the contemporary rate of climatic change in the tropics, the evidence-gained from field studies-of large-scale and rapid change in the dynamics and biomass of old-growth forests, and evidence of how climate change.

Tropical forests affect climate, and the removal of the forests will change climate. Or not. This book discusses basic questions on how far, if at all, tropical deforestation leads to climatic change.

The question of this uncertainty is particularly addressed. Forests, especially tropical forests, play an important role in global climate change. Tree biomass stores carbon through photosynthesis, so deforestation contributes to carbon emissions.

Tropical forests contain about 25% of the world’s carbon, and other forest regions of the world add another 20% of the world’s carbon. Wildfires and slash and burn agriculture release carbon dioxide that would otherwise be stored in the forest biomass into the atmosphere.

Forest regrowth and crops recapture some carbon, but overall, deforestation is a source of atmospheric carbon dioxide and therefore a contributor to global warming.

(Photograph © mke). Billions of tonnes of carbon dioxide risk being lost into the atmosphere due to tropical forest soils being significantly more sensitive to climate change than previously thought. Tropical forests are taking up less carbon dioxide from the air, reducing their ability to act as “carbon sinks” and bringing closer the prospect of accelerating climate breakdown.
