Amazon landscape change study highlights ecological harms and opportunities for action

A major study into landscape changes in the Brazilian Amazon sheds new light on the many environmental threats the biome faces — but also offers encouraging opportunities for ecological sustainability in the world’s most biodiverse tropical forest. The study’s findings are critical because as the Amazon moves closer towards a ‘tipping point’, they provide a robust evidence base to inform urgently needed conservation and regeneration priorities in the forest. They show that gains can be achieved through a range of actions — including, but not limited to, halting deforestation.A major study into landscape changes in the Brazilian Amazon sheds new light on the many environmental threats the biome faces — but also offers encouraging opportunities for ecological sustainability in the world’s most biodiverse tropical forest.
