Study: Unless there's a U-turn, Amazon rainforest getting close to tipping point of permanent loss

The Amazon is losing its ability to recover from disturbances like droughts and land-use changes, scientists reported Monday, adding to concern that the rainforest is approaching a critical threshold beyond which much of it will be replaced by grassland, with vast consequences for biodiversity and climate change.


The scientists said their research did not pinpoint when this threshold, which they described as a tipping point, might be reached.
