Panama isle is nerve center for climate researchers

In a manmade lake in the Panama Canal sits an island whose compact jungle is teeming with researchers studying biodiversity and climate change -- a tropical outcrop hailed as vital for understanding the world's forests.

Barro Colorado Island is 15.6 square kilometers (six square miles), roughly four times the size of New York's Central Park.
