Research from the Luquillo CZO was featured in the list of National Science Foundation-funded research results being presented at the upcoming 2016 Ecological Society of America meeting, August 7-12, 2016 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Whendee Silver (UC Berkeley) will be presenting "Drought in the rainforest: Biogeochemical responses and feedbacks to climate change" (details below).

Drought in the rainforest: Biogeochemical responses and feedbacks to climate change."

Climate models predict an increase in the frequency and severity of drought in Neotropical rainforests. These environmental conditions are new for humid tropical forests and are likely to lead to changes in biogeochemical cycling, affecting patterns in carbon storage and greenhouse gas emissions, researchers believe. Scientists will report on research on the effects of a severe drought in 2015 in Puerto Rico's Luquillo Experimental Forest, one of NSF's Critical Zone Observatories.
