Jan Bogaert and Jean-Louis Doucet take part in an international study

Tropical forests can withstand heat to a certain extent...

Tropical forests face an uncertain future under the pressure of climate change, but new scientific research published in Science suggests that they can continue to store large amounts of carbon in a warmer world. An international research team has demonstrated, based on 590 pantropical stations, that tropical forests have a long-term capacity for climate adaptation, in part due to their high biodiversity. However, a threshold of 32°C (daytime temperature) must not be exceeded in order not to push forests beyond this safety zone, otherwise rapid carbon losses will be observed. One way to achieve this?  Limiting greenhouse gas emissions as a matter of urgency.

Let us also note the collaboration for this study of Doctor J.-F. Bastin (former student of GxABT).
