Protecting tropical forest carbon stocks may not prevent large-scale species loss

Protecting tropical forest carbon stocks may not prevent large-scale species loss

As the world seeks to curb human-induced climate change, will protecting the carbon of tropical forests also ensure the survival of their species? A study suggests the answer to this question is far from straightforward. Forests with the greatest carbon content do not necessarily house the most species, meaning carbon-focused conservation can miss large swathes of tropical forest biodiversity.
