Project Area


General objective: To identify and spatialize the potential of natural regeneration, as well as of isolated trees, in pastures cultivated in the Cerrado biome. From the results obtained, inform public policies on prioritization of areas for restoration and payments for environmental services or environmental certification of pastures that conserve Cerrado trees.

Specific objectives:

  • Characterize the potential of natural regeneration in cultivated pastures of the Cerrado.
  • Identify and characterize the factors that affect the natural regeneration potential in abandoned pastures of the Cerrado (this objective will be verified only in Conservation Units, where the natural regeneration potential can be expressed without management for grass maintenance).
  • To analyze the restoration potential in Cerrado pastures.

Support amount: U$ 47,987.22

Duration: 29 months (October 2018 to May 2020)
