Global conservation outcomes depend on marine protected areas with five key features

Alexandre Pépin's insight:

In line with global targets agreed under the Convention on Biological Diversity, the number of marine protected areas (MPAs) is increasing rapidly, yet socio-economic benefits generated by MPAs remain difficult to predict and under debate1, 2. MPAs often fail to reach their full potential as a consequence of factors such as illegal harvesting, regulations that legally allow detrimental harvesting, or emigration of animals outside boundaries because of continuous habitat or inadequate size of reserve3, 4, 5.

Amazon forests maintain consistent canopy structure and greenness during the dry season

Alexandre Pépin's insight:

The seasonality of sunlight and rainfall regulates net primary production in tropical forests1. Previous studies have suggested that light is more limiting than water for tropical forest productivity2, consistent with greening of Amazon forests during the dry season in satellite data3, 4, 5, 6, 7. We evaluated four potential mechanisms for the seasonal green-up phenomenon, including increases in leaf area5, 6, 7 or leaf reflectance3, 4, 6, using a sophisticated radiative transfer model8 and independent satellite observations from lidar and optical sensors.
