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...
Riparian areas are essential in maintaining the cycle and the quality of water. Besides the role in maintaining hydrological functions of those sites, soil attributes and processes can determine the type of vegetation and can be expressed in soil morphology, that therefore can be used to infer the type of environment, vegetation physiognomy or species. We aim to understand the influenc...
