Lancaster part of team of 100 scientists investigating how the Amazon is failing to keep up with climate change
A team of more than 100 scientists has assessed the impact of global warming on thousands of tree species across the Amazon to discover the winners and losers from 30 years of climate change. Their analysis found the effects of climate change are altering the rainforest’s composition of tree species but not quickly enough to keep up with the changing environment.
Our research groups include a wide range of researchers from the natural and social scientists. They work in multi-disciplinary teams within, across and beyond these groups to help find solutions to the big global environmental challenges.
Our research challenges provide a focus for our fundamental and applied research, ensuring our work helps provide the underlying knowledge needed to find effective solutions.
