Forest ecosystems cover approximately one third of the land surface and substantially influence global cycles of carbon, water and energy. Tropical forests are the most biodiverse and productive of natural forest ecosystems and yet our knowledge of their functioning and likely response to climate is limited compared with others.Two important environmental drivers of change in forests are drought and warming.
