Control of net primary productivity by rain in a tropical rainforest of the Chocó Biogeographic; 2006 - 2007

Project: Research Project

Project Details


Precipitation is one of the climatic determinants of productivity in many tropical ecosystems. In dry ecosystems, water acts as a resource and increased precipitation is associated with increased productivity. However, recent data suggest that abundant precipitation causes a reduction in productivity in very humid tropical forests. Tropical forests are responsible for more than 30% of global land productivity and buy more than 30% of the world's land productivity.
