Amazon FACE – “Experiment in the Amazon forest will test the reaction to global warming”

To find an answer to the question if global warming might provide a solution to one of the problems it creates, a team of scientists started investigations for what may be the most ambitious experiment the Amazon forest has seen in some 20 years. Ecologists are hoping the project, called Amazon FACE (Free-Air CO2 Enrichment), can tell them whether the forest will survive the drought that global warming is expected to cause.
