Abstract

This proposal aims to develop a multi-scale remote sensing framework to model and predict the carbon sink secondary forests. As such, it is within a priority area of research and innovation between FAPESP, CONFAP (National for the State Funding Agencies) and The UK Academies. The proposal will also benefit the FAPESP-NERC funded "ECOFOR: Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning in degraded and recovering Amazonian and Atlantic Forests". Our novel method examines plant functional traits (PFT) along gradients of forest succession. It will take advantage of airborne LiDAR (light detection and ranging) images, satellite images and comprehensive forest inventory data in order to quantify the functional relation between forest structure (e.g. heights) and other PFT (leave, stems and biomass) during forest succession.
