West African Forests Capture More Carbon Despite Drought

West African Forests Capture More Carbon Despite Drought

“It could be that the increase in biomass (recorded in this study) could be the result of something else, but we think that the maintenance of the forest structure, despite the drought conditions, is a result of a change in species composition. This basically means that you cannot take those short-term studies of extreme droughts and extrapolate the findings to a long-term event with different kinds of precipitation changes. It is very important for the global carbon cycle that these forests are maintained.”
