New Maps Highlight Habitat Corridors in the Tropics

Falmouth, Mass. January 27, 2014 – A team of Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC) scientists created maps of habitat corridors connecting protected areas in the tropics to incorporate biodiversity co-benefits into climate change mitigation strategies. Drs. Patrick Jantz, Scott Goetz, and Nadine Laporte describe their findings in an article entitled, “Carbon stock corridors to mitigate climate change and promote biodiversity in the tropics,” available online in the journal Nature Climate Change on January 26. – See more at: http://whrc.org/news/pressroom/PR-2014-JantzGoetzLaporte.html#sthash.goG5hq5I.Lf2JeteU.dpufFig2_NCC
