LACOSA project update

Leave a comment

In the currently running LACOSA project we will be investigating species composition and vegetation structure of >10.000 tree individuals that have been mapped and identified in 20 one-hectare plots established in SW Costa Rica. By using TLS to map aboveground C stocks across topoedaphic and successional gradients on the OSA peninsula we aim to create a more mechanistic understanding of how the controlling state factors (e.g. climate, geology, time and biota) determine the distribution of aboveground C stocks at the landscape-scale. Check out some of the scans right here:
