This is a multimedia feature project for Vox that uses text, photos, and graphics to explain how at least three tree species from the rainforests of Brazil, Indonesia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo regulate and interact with the global climate and weather patterns thousands of miles away. The reporting team focuses on a few key superpowers of these tree species, and explains how the forest ecosystems continue to be under significant threat of deforestation.
