Tropical deforestation: patterns, causes and consequences

Tropical forests number among the world’s most biodiverse ecosystems, but are disappearing at an alarming rate

This meeting will examine the global patterns and rates of tropical deforestation, and look at how the causes of deforestation differ among continents. Then, we will focus on the Brazilian Amazon, which harbours almost one-third of the world's remaining tropical forests and a staggering 1.8 million species of plants and animals. Here, we will investigate how and why deforestation rates have changed through time, and consider the impacts that deforestation in this region has had on its world-renowned biodiversity.
