    Hi all!
    Two great news from Chile!

    A project to continue with the carbon balance measurements in Fitzroya forests was recently awarded by the Chilean National Science Foundation (Fondecyt). The four year project lead by the Universidad Austral de Chile is entitled "Climate - tree growth relationships and carbon dynamics in multimillenial old growth Fitzroya cupressoides forests in Southern South America (40º - 43º 30´S)" . Yadvinder will participate as an International Collaborator in this initiative.

    In addition, the Comisión Nacional de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica (CONICYT) awarded funds to the Universidad Austral de Chile to install a Flux tower... More

  • Fitzroya forests in Chile

    Fitzroya cupressoides ((Molina) Johnston) or Alerce is one of the most outstanding species of the temperate rainforests of southern South America, because of its beauty, scientific, cultural and historical relevance. Fitzroya is an endangered species, endemic to these rainforests and one of the longest-lived trees in the world (with a lifespan of more than 3600 years). Alerce has suffered a long history of exploitation since European colonization began in the sixteenth century, and is currently listed as endangered in the IUCN Red list of threatened species and enjoys national legal protection. Despite its protection, Alerce remains threatened by illegal logging... More
