Monitoring impacts of climate change on biodiversity: an altitudinal transect in a protected area of Amazonian Peru

Dr Lily Rodriguez (GIZ-Peru: Biodiversity and Climate Change Project) presented a poster at a conference in China which included work on 5 plots established in 2010 with the collaboration of RAINFOR in Reserva Comunal El Sira, Peru.

The plots cover an altitudinal gradient of 250-2250m and will be recensused to monitor the composition of trees, turnover and growth. Read more about the transect establishment in our field campaign pages.
