Hyperdominance in Amazonian Forest Carbon Cycling
This paper finds that dominance of forest function is even more concentrated in a few species than is dominance of tree abundance, with only ≈1% of Amazon tree species responsible for 50% of carbon storage and productivity.
Global Sequestration Potential of Increased Organic Carbon in Cropland Soils
The role of soil organic carbon in global carbon cycles is receiving increasing attention both as a potentially large and uncertain source of CO2 emissions in response to predicted global temperature rises and as a natural sink for carbon able to reduce atmospheric CO2.
The undervalued contribution of mangrove protection in Mexicoto carbon emission targets
This paper estimates that emissions from deforestation and degradation of mangroves in Mexico are 31 times greater than the values used to determine national emission reduction targets for the Paris Agreement.
Energy Transition Outlook 2017
A global and regional forecast of the energy transition to 2050.
Tracking the Global Footprint of Fisheries
A study by Global Fishing Watch and their research partners presents the first ever global dataset of fishing captured by satellites using automatic identification system (AIS) positions.
The Economics of Fishing the High Seas
This scientific paper suggests that fishing at the current scale is enabled by large government subsidies, without which as much as 54% of the present high-seas fishing grounds would be unprofitable at current fishing rates.
Land Use and 1.5°C Degrees
Through significant emissions reductions and carbon removals, the land sector can contribute about 25% of the progress needed to meet the 1.5°C goal formulated under the Paris Agreement.
How Impoved Land Use Can Contribute to the 1.5˚C Goal of The Paris Agreement
Climate Focus’ working paper develops a roadmap of action for the land-use sector to meet its necessary contribution to the Paris Agreement.
