Patricia’s Story: TEAM Network and the Vegetation Protocol – Conservation International (CI)

9 July 2013

Patricia Alvarez travels two days by boat to measure more than 7,000 trees and vines in the remote, intact core of Peru‘s Manú National Park. Her work is part of the TEAM Network, a global web of field stations that provide an early warning system for loss of biodiversity in tropical forests. The vegetation protocol followed by Patricia and her fellow TEAM scientists is used to calculate biomass and carbon stocks on a global scale.

This story is the second in a series that will follow three TEAM scientists on three different continents monitoring ground dwelling animals, vegetation and climate.
