"Rural Forest Communities at a Tipping Point? Trends & Actionable Research Opportunities" Pursuit team meeting

This Pursuit project focuses on ecological wealth and changing human populations in rural forest communities in developed countries. The project assembles a diverse group of researchers with forest-change expertise to perform quantitative, data-driven comparative and case-based studies of land-use/land-cover and demographic change, explore the implications for ecological wealth, and build scenario-based predictions for assessing the implications of various forms of change on ecosystem services and access to these services.
