Researchers are using Biosphere 2 to study how H2O, CO2 and VOCs flow through drought-stressed plants and soils in the largest labeling experiment to date. The study results can help make forests more resilient and climate models more accurate.
Rainforests are being lost through deforestation and land use. This reduces their resilience to climate change and makes them more vulnerable to droughts and wildfires. A new early warning system responds to the different conditions of rainforests.
