The degradation of natural ecosystems can disrupt vital ecosystem services, increase the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and threaten the livelihoods of local communities. Knowledge of the impacts of land-use change on ecosystem services, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and the well-being of the rural poor is needed to inform land use policy and practice. I carry out applied research and contribute to projects that aim to improve land management by understanding the impacts of land-use change in smallholder agriculture and community managed forests throughout the tropics.
