Science Advances, one of the world’s top, multidisciplinary, highly selective, online-only research journals, has published an article about how much carbon dioxide – the primary greenhouse gas that causes global warming – in the atmosphere can be reduced by natural regrowth of secondary forests in the Latin America neotropics. A total 60 scientists from throughout Latin America and the U.S. wrote the research article, titled “Carbon Sequestration Potential of Second-Growth Forest Regeneration in the Latin American Tropics.” Two of the authors are geography professors from The University of Alabama’s Spatial Ecology and Conservation Lab. Dr. Eben Broadbent, an assistant professor who is listed as second author on the article – a ranking system showing the amount of work each author contributes – and Dr. Angelica Almeyda Zambrano, is an adjunct professor who is listed as fifth author.
