Researches have identified long-disappeared forests available for restoration across the world. They describe how such an effort, could absorb as much as 135 gigatons of atmospheric carbon.

Species distribution models (SDMs) are widely used in ecology and conservation. Presence-only SDMs such as MaxEnt frequently use natural history collections (NHCs) as occurrence data, given their huge numbers and accessibility. NHCs are often spatially biased which may generate inaccuracies in SDMs.

From a Natural History Point of View the Amazon is still a green unknown world and new species are being discovered at an amazing rate. See this report of WWF that shows that between 2014 en 2015 every two days a news species is being discovered. In two years time 381 new animal and plant species. 216 plants, 93 fishes, 32 amphibians, 20 mammals (2 of which fossils), 19 reptiles en 1 bird.
