Abstract

This project will examine these issues in Atlantic Forest, with the aim of identifying sustainable approaches to land use that will strengthen the resilience of ecosystems to environmental change. Specifically, we will test the hypothesis that thresholds are likely to occur in forest landscapes when tree species are exposed to multiple stressors that affect different life history stages, through positive feedback loops. This will be addressed using a spatially explicit model of forest dynamics, LANDIS II, which will be parameterised and calibrated using empirical data obtained from field surveys. The model and empirical data will then be used to identify critical levels and thresholds in provision of ecosystem services under different land use scenarios. (AU)
