Reforesting tropical landscapes: a large-scale demographic study using satellite images in Panama
Also possible as internship. Secondary forest growth has the potential to restore ecosystem functions to millions of hectares of degraded land. As a consequence, forest restoration at the landscape scale has become a conservati ...
