Old-growth neotropical forests are shifting in species and trait composition
Tropical forests have long been thought to be in stable state, but recent insights indicate that global change is leading to shifts in forest dynamics and species composition. These shifts may be driven by environmental ...
Drivers of tropical rainforest composition and alpha diversity patterns over a 2,520 m altitudinal gradient
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2019)
Agricultural intensification alters bat assemblage composition and abundance in a dynamic Neotropical landscape
The recent trend of agricultural intensification in tropical landscapes poses a new threat to biodiversity conservation. Conversion of previously heterogeneous agricultural landscapes to intensive plantation agriculture ...
Above-ground biomass storage potential in primary rain forests managed for timber production in Costa Rica
(Elsevier, Ámsterdam (Países Bajos), 2021-07)
Tropical forests play a fundamental role in mitigating climate change through storage of carbon in above- and below- ground biomass. Their mitigation potential is, however, affected by significant greenhouse gas emissions ...
Biomass of timber species in Central American secondary forests: Towards climate change mitigation through sustainable timber harvesting
(Elsevier, Ámsterdam (Países Bajos), 2021-06)
Sustainable management of secondary forests for timber production offers the opportunity to combine nature-based climate change mitigation with direct improvement of human livelihoods in the tropics, but this dual potential ...
