A collaborative research effort in climate change and biodiversity for the Tropical Andes (Hosted by NCEAS)

Principal Investigators:

Lee Hannah, and Jason Bradford

Despite the biodiversity importance of the Andes, our actual understanding of biodiversity patterns and potential impacts of climate and atmospheric changes is hampered by poor coordination among research groups, both within and among disciplines. For example, researchers studying forest composition and dynamics using permanent plots are not all linked to a common database framework although most use similar methods. Climatologists working in Brazil and elsewhere to model Andean climate change are not coordinating their studies with on-ground... more
