Why is the tree species composition in the Amazon changing? A functional trait approach
Permanent sample plots in the Amazon show that there is a directional change in tree species composition. The question is who are the winners (increasing in abundance), who are the loosers (decreasing in abundance), and why? Is it ...

What is the biomass of tropical rainforest trees?
Tropical forests store a quarter of all terrestrial biomass and play therefore an important role in the global carbon cycle. Much of the biomass in stored in giant emergent trees. Yet, estimations of carbon storage remain highly u ...

How do Brazilian cerrado trees respond to droughts?
Increasing temperatures and drought stress may change the responses of tropical trees to climatic variability. In the dry woody vegetation of the cerrado biome in Brazil, these effects are expected to be strong because rainfall is ...

Litter production during secondary succession in tropical wet forest in Mexico
The general problem: During secondary succession after land abandonment in the wet tropics the vegetation recovers rapidly. With biomass building up, the productivity and the biomass cycling also increases. Generally with more  ...
