Description Within a conservation area in the southern Brazilian Amazon
there has been large tin mining activity in the past. Since 10
years now, the areas impacted by mining are been restored and
monitored annually for vegetation development and soil
improvement. The restoration areas have different ages, soil
properties and landscape conditions. All tree species have been
classified regarding their dispersal mode.
