Description

Conservation in the Amazon rainforest and Google searches: A DCCA approach

This work analyzes the descriptive statistics of the Google search volume for the terms related to the National Reserve of Copper and Associates (RENCA), a Brazilian mineral reserve in the Amazon, before and after the government signed the decree releasing it for exploration and identifies strong cross-correlations between the different expressions related to RENCA in Google Trends.

Mabea fistulifera and Zeyheria tuberculosa can be indicated for phytoremediation programs of soils contaminated with hormonal herbicides

Mabea fistulifera and Zeyheria tuberculosa can be recommended for phytoremediation programs in areas contaminated by the herbicides 2,4-D + picloram.

How deregulation, drought and increasing fire impact Amazonian biodiversity.

This work finds close associations between forest policy, fire-impacted forest area and their potential impacts on biodiversity, and highlights the critical role of policy enforcement in the preservation of biodiversity in the Amazon.

Global Observations and CMIP6 Simulations of Compound Extremes of Monthly Temperature and Precipitation

The results show a significant increase in the frequency of compound warm extremes but a decrease in compound cold extremes during 1985–2014 relative to 1955–1984 and their future changes under Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs) are investigated.

Alimentação, agronegócio e pandemia: um debate para o tempo presente

O livro de Rob Wallace chega ao Brasil em meio à pandemia da COVID-19 e da crise ambiental enfrentada principalmente na Região Amazônica 1 e no Pantanal brasileiro. Os dois fenômenos têm em comum

Limiting the high impacts of Amazon forest dieback with no-regrets science and policy action

An interdisciplinary research agenda to fill lingering knowledge gaps and constrain the risk of AFD should focus on developing sound experimental and modeling evidence regarding its likelihood, integrated with socioeconomic assessments to anticipate its impacts and evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of mitigation/adaptation options.

Patterns of land use, extensification, and intensification of Brazilian agriculture

The results provide the first comprehensive historical overview of agricultural land use and productivity in Brazil, providing clear insights to guide future territorial planning, sustainable agriculture, policy, and decision-making.

Amazon Tipping Point

Using isotopic ratios of oxygen in rainwater samples collected from the Atlantic to the Peruvian border, Brazilian scientist Eneas Salati was able to demonstrate unequivocally that the Amazon generates approximately half of its own rainfall by recycling moisture 5 to 6 times as airmasses move across the basin to the west.

Modelling conservation in the Amazon basin

It is reported that protected areas in the Amazon basin—the central feature of prevailing conservation approaches—are an important but insufficient component of this strategy, based on policy-sensitive simulations of future deforestation.
