Effects of climatic variability on tropical tree populations. How to scale up from tree growth to population viability?
MSc thesis Tree-ring analyses of tropical tree species have shown that years with low rainfall and high temperatures reduce stem growth and may also increase mortality. Climate change will likely increase the frequency and sev ...
