We study the effects of management and disturbance on forest ecosystems, including carbon, nutrient, and water cycling. The guiding question of our work is, "How can we use basic science to enhance forest sustainability?" We combine global vegetation and climate models, remote sensing data, and field and laboratory measurements to assess changes in forests and plantations from Brazil to Sweden.
