The global extent of tropical forests is increasingly declining, thus agriculture-dominated landscapes now cover ~50% of the tropical biome. In this context, the ability to understand and influence tropical biodiversity largely depends on the understanding of actively-managed landscapes. Since pastures cover most agricultural lands in the neotropics, CIAT’s tropical forages program is keen to research how ecological and human variables correlate with this trend.
