Healing the planet: Conservation of the world`s tropical forests
Lovejoy, Thomas E. .
A Wild Solution to Climate Change.
Half of the excess CO2 in the atmosphere comes from destruction and degradation of ecosystems over the past three centuries. An important amount can be removed by ecosystem restoration providing benefits for ecosystems as well as reducing the concomitant amount of climate change. The ideal would be to maximize the amount of biodiversity conservation benefit -- e.g., restoration in biodiversity hotspots like the Atlantic forest region of Brazil.
