Event Description

This week’s conservation seminar is presented by Prof Robin Chazdon from the University of the Sunshine Coast.

“Under suitable conditions, tropical forests can regenerate on their own or with some types of assistance, greatly reducing costs of restoration interventions. Assisting the regeneration of tropical forests is a key nature-based solution to halt and reverse biodiversity loss, mitigate climate change, improve water resources and bring direct socio-economic benefits to local communities. I describe efforts to map areas of naturally regenerating forests and to predict natural regeneration capacity for spatial planning of forest restoration at subnational and national scales.”
