DEFORESTATION X CLIMATE CHANGE
Professor James Watling and his students are in the forests around Villavicencio, Colombia. They are interested in understanding how deforestation and climate change affect amphibian and reptiles. Let's see how they explain us their research in the field and lab.
Today, deforestation is the greatest threat to terrestrial biodiversity, and that threat will only worsen as temperatures rise. Amphibians and reptiles are particularly sensitive to both deforestation and climate change. We hope that our work will help preserve landscapes that support humans and all the other species we share the planet with.
This is the result of a collaboration with James Watling Lab.
