Amazon rainforest more able to withstand drought than previously thought.New research suggests that the Amazon rainforest may be more able to cope with dry conditions than previously predicted. Researchers used a computer model to demonstrate that, providing forest conservation measures are in place, the Amazon rainforest may be more able to withstand periods of drought than has been estimated by other climate models.ScienceDaily

The US space agency Nasa warned this week that the Amazon rainforest may be showing the first signs of large-scale degradation due to climate change.  A team of scientists led by the agency found that an area twice the size of California continues to suffer from a mega-drought that began eight years ago. The drought during the summer of 2005 caused widespread damage and die-offs to trees.
