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.

    I’m a PhD student at the University of Florida, and I’m working with silvopastoral systems in Colombia. How do I go about learning more about this project? I’m hoping to find more people to collaborate with on future projects.
