The LBA proect was created through an international cooperative agreement and includes participants from Brazil, other Amazonan countries, the U.S., and European nations. The LBA participants have conducted research at the atmospheric and soil levels at locatons dstributed throughout the Amazonian rain forest and the Cerrado gure 1The Cerrado of centraBrazil (Fgure 2) is one of the largest savannah regions on earth. The ?stressors? affecting ecosystems in this regon, includdeforestation, fire, soil degradation, unwise agricultural practices, climate change, and urbanzation, are also experienced in many U.S. ecosystems (Figure 3). Intense agricultural activties, such asand cearing for soybean cultivation and cattle farming, are rapy changng the Cerrado. U.S. EPA and UnB scentists have been collaborating in central Brazi (Figure 1) to determine how several of these stressors are affecting sonutrient cycng, decompostion, and the soil? atmosphere exchange of carbon-and nitrogen-containng trace gases. The research is contributing data and scientific understandng for the development of models be these stressor?ecosystem nteractions.
