The Environmental Legay of Modern Tropical Deforestation

A new paper where StocModLCC was used was just published in Current Biology. In this study Rosa et al. estimate that historical tropical deforestation has indebted the future with 5–10 years of global deforestation’s worth of carbon emissions and more extinctions than estimated to have already occurred since 1900. Habitat protection alone will do little to avoid paying these debts that have already accumulated from historical habitat loss.
