cDEEP - Caatina Dry Ecosystem Ecological Program

The present project aims to assess how human disturbance and changes in rainfall regime affect the Caatinga ecosystem’s biota at different levels of biological organization (i.e, from populations to ecosystem level), by correlating these aspects with the theoretical reference shown in macro trends already documented in the tropics. The LTER Catimbau is also part of the ILTER (International Long Term Ecological Research) network joins several other long-lasting projects developed around the world.

Forest, water, energy and food security in the Brazilian dry forests

This project aims to understand the role of forests as a fourth dimension of the water, energy and food security nexus (WEF-Nexus). We want to lnow hpw land tenure inequalities, human livelihoods and forest cover are associated.
