Abstract/Summary

Both REDD+ and the Convention on Biological Diversity aim to enhance carbon stocks and biodiversity through tropical forest restoration. However, we lack evidence of the effectiveness of such management. Using data from tropical forest chronosequence and restoration studies we investigate the recovery of carbon pools and plant biodiversity in recovering forests and determine factors limiting recovery.
