Strategic Focus

The group's mission is to conduct basic and applied research to understand the ecosystemic function of lowland forests (e.g. mangroves, wooded wetlands, riparian forests, dry forests, rainforests, and agro-ecosystems) in the Caribbean and Pacific regions, interacting with human systems at spatial scales ranging from the local landscape to planet Earth, in pursuit of socio-ecological resilience and public policy orientation. The main problems studied are 1) deforestation and conversion of forests to agricultural uses, 2) unplanned urban expansion, 3) conflicts in the environmental management of coastal areas and watersheds, and 4) legacies of the Colombian Armed Conflict.
