Rainforest Vulnerability Index – Index Ranks Rainforests’ Vulnerability to Climate and Human Impacts (NASA)

NASA writes: Scientists from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California and other international research institutions have created a tropical rainforest vulnerability index. It will detect and evaluate the vulnerability of these diverse ecosystems to two main categories of threats: the warming and drying climate, and the consequences of human land use such as deforestation and fragmentation from encroaching roads, agricultural fields, and logging.
