On November 8 (UPI) – According to a new Amazon study, the largest forest in the planet will replace its composition as a response to climate change.
Unfortunately, research has shown that Amazon is not rapidly developing. Climate change faster than Amazon's adaptation.
Scientists kill dead moisture-type species more quickly, they can be replaced by species that can withstand dry conditions. Drought in recent decades has damaged most of the Amazon.
"The ecosystem response is behind the climate change," said Adrian Eskiviv Mulbert, a geographer of the University of Leeds. "We have had a major impact on the Amazon Basin drainage for the past decade, which has a major impact on drought-prone types of trees, and compensatory growth in well-stocked species is insufficient to survive in dry conditions. «
A poll released this month in the Global Change Biology magazine also uses crustaceans in the upper levels of carbon dioxide.
At the same time, some small tree species benefit from the growth of CO2 and the death of large, moist-loving trees.
In previous studies, CO2 levels increase at least some of the forest dynamics, which allows increasing photosynthesis speeds of more species and capturing new areas.
"Some pioneer trees grow very fast Cekropia, Which corresponds to the changes in forest dynamics, which ultimately can increase the level of carbon dioxide, "said Leeds Professor of Tropical Ecology, Oliver Phillips.
If changes help Amazon adapt to changing conditions, rapid changes can destabilize the ecosystems.
"The impact of climate change on the forestry community can have major implications for rainy forest biodiversity," said Kyle Dexter of Edinburgh University. "The most vulnerable soil on the land is twice as dangerous, as they are generally restricted to the Amazon's heart, which can be eliminated further."
