Tree-planting schemes threaten tropical biodiversity, say ecologists
Paper reveals scientists' concerns that single-species carbon plantations threaten native flora and fauna, while delivering negligible benefitsMonoculture tree-planting schemes are threatening tropical biodiversity while only offering modest climate benefit, ecologists have said, warning that ecosystems like the Amazon and Congo basin are being reduced to their carbon value.Amid a boom in the planting of single-species plantations to capture carbon, scientists have urged governments to prioritise the conservation and restoration of native forests over commercial monocultures, and cautioned that planting swathes of non-native trees in tropical regions threatens important flora and fauna for a negligible climate impact.
