How old is this tropical forest tree? (And how to estimate that?)
Thereĺs a lot of discussion about the (maximum) ages of trees in tropical forests. Some scientists consider that thousand-year old trees are rather common, while others believe this is unlikely. Apart from this fundamental questio ...

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 ...
