Perhaps one of the greatest challenges facing science and the society today is how to predict and monitor the consequences of global change for life on Earth (Higgins & Scheiter 2012). The speed of changes in land use and climate, together with fast diversity losses, pollution and changes in the hydrological cycle urge rapid answers for ensuring the endurance of biological diversity, ec...
More than 85% of the Brazilian area was originally covered by three biomes: the Amazon, the Cerrado and the Atlantic forest, all among the most biodiverse in the world. However, land use changes and deforestation have reduced this area to less than 60%, and much of the remaining vegetated areas sustain secondary and disturbed vegetation rather than primary vegetation. In addition, the c...
Faced with the challenge of planning multifunctional landscapes to ensure the retention of both original biological diversity and ecosystem functions, as well as agricultural production, this project aims to investigate how parameters of landscape structure directly or indirectly regulates key ecosystem services through influencing a series of distinct ecological processes. As ecosystem...
This project aims to improve the infrastructure of the Center - involving bathrooms, study room and meeting room / classroom - that receives the thematic projects, researchers and provide the development of the academic activities of teachers and students, as well as attending the NEPAM´s Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in Environment and Society.

Changes in land use caused by agricultural activities can lead to environmental degradation, alteration of the landscape, loss of ecosystem functions and, consequently, of environment services. This occurs because land-use and land-cover change is affected by a complex interaction between natural and social systems at different temporal and spatial scales. In rural areas, such use and c...
Tropical Forests hold half of the total stock of carbon in the world's vegetation and produce 34% of the total gross primary productivity in terrestrial systems across the planet, which represents the largest contribution to Earths' productivity from a single biome and is more than four times the contribution from boreal and temperate forests combined. At the same time, tropical forests...
