This project is focused on the impacts of natural and anthropogenic disturbances on forest carbon cycling and tree diversity using 1-hectare permanent plots in Belize. It investigates the carbon footprint of large-scale hurricane disturbance, and the interaction with fire. These permanent plots also have historical and recent logging footprint. The sites are run by Percival Cho, who is investigating the effects of interacting hurricane, logging and fire disturbance on the dynamics of Belizean forests.
