"Predicting Amazonian deforestation and its biodiversity consequences" by Dr Robert Ewers

Past Event

25 October 2013, 5:15pm - 6:45pm

School of Geography and Environment
South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3QY

This seminar is organised by the Oxford Centre for Tropical Forests, an Oxford Martin
School Centre

Speaker: Dr Robert Ewers, Reader in Ecology, Imperial College London

Summary: This talk will present new models of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon, including an examination of the roles played by the logging industry and the rapid development of road networks across this rapidly developing frontier. Dr Ewers will then link those models to biological models to quantify the historical, and predict the future, patterns of local extinction and extinction debt of forest-dependent vertebrates.
