study on the Amazon rainforest was published in the Nature Climate Change journal.Using 30 years of satellite data and statistical tools, the researchers observed that around 75% of the Amazon rainforest is likely heading towards a tipping point.Amazon rainforest is losing its ability to bounce back from extreme events such as prolonged droughts or forest fires.
