                         Brazil's Cerrado biome has seen continued deforestation over the 
                         past decade. Though approved in 2012, no study evaluated the 
                         impacts of new Brazilian Forest Code (FC) revision on biodiversity 
                         and ecosystem services. Here, we report the first assessment of 
                         the likely loss and gain in biodiversity and ecosystem services 
                         expected if the FC is properly enforced across 200 million 
                         hectares of the Cerrado. We also discuss the challenges associated 
                         to compliance with the law and present opportunities for 
                         conservation. Establishing restoration programmes in private 
                         properties with currently less native vegetation than required by 
                         the FC could create habitat for 25% more threatened species than 
                         now found in these places and could also increase water security 
                         and carbon stock in 56.6 MtC. More important, trading 
                         environmental reserve quotas coupled with the strategic expansion 
                         of protected areas on private and public land could definitely 
                         rescue the Cerrado from the brink.",
