Divergence of hydraulic traits among tropical forest trees across topographic and vertical environment gradients in Borneo.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): The New phytologist [New Phytol] 2022 Sep; Vol. 235 (6), pp. 2183-2198. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Jun 26.

Abstract: Fine-scale topographic-edaphic gradients are common in tropical forests and drive species spatial turnover and marked changes in forest structure and function. We evaluate how hydraulic traits of tropical tree species relate to vertical and horizontal ...

Discovering the forest in plain sight: a pop-up Symposium focusing on seasonally dry tropical forests.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): The New phytologist [New Phytol] 2022 Jan; Vol. 233 (1), pp. 62-65.

Paired analysis of tree ring width and carbon isotopes indicates when controls on tropical tree growth change from light to water limitations.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Tree physiology [Tree Physiol] 2022 Jun 09; Vol. 42 (6), pp. 1131-1148.

Abstract: Light and water availability are likely to vary over the lifespan of closed-canopy forest trees, with understory trees experiencing greater limitations to growth by light and canopy trees greater limitation due to drought. As drought and shade have opp...

Functional recovery of secondary tropical forests.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America [Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A] 2021 Dec 07; Vol. 118 (49).

Abstract: One-third of all Neotropical forests are secondary forests that regrow naturally after agricultural use through secondary succession. We need to understand better how and why succession varies across environmental gradients and broad geographic scales....

Liana functional assembly along the hydrological gradient in Central Amazonia.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Oecologia [Oecologia] 2022 Oct; Vol. 200 (1-2), pp. 183-197. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Sep 24.

Abstract: Soil hydrology, nutrient availability, and forest disturbance determine the variation of tropical tree species composition locally. However, most habitat filtering is explained by tree species' hydraulic traits along the hydrological gradient. We asked...

Soils and topography control natural disturbance rates and thereby forest structure in a lowland tropical landscape.

Publication Type: Editorial & Opinion

Source(s): Ecology letters [Ecol Lett] 2022 May; Vol. 25 (5), pp. 1126-1138. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Feb 06.

Abstract: Tree mortality is a major control over tropical forest carbon stocks globally but the strength of associations between abiotic drivers and tree mortality within forested landscapes is poorly understood. Here, we used repeat drone photogrammetry across ...

Seed-rain-successional feedbacks in wet tropical forests.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Ecology [Ecology] 2021 Jul; Vol. 102 (7), pp. e03362. Date of Electronic Publication: 2021 May 17.

Abstract: Tropical forest regeneration after abandonment of former agricultural land depends critically on the input of tree seeds, yet seed dispersal is increasingly disrupted in contemporary human-modified landscapes. Here, we introduce the concept of seed-rai...

Carbon payments can cost-effectively improve logging sustainability in the Amazon.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Journal of environmental management [J Environ Manage] 2022 Jul 15; Vol. 314, pp. 115094. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Apr 22.

Abstract: Selective logging is pervasive across the tropics and unsustainable logging depletes forest biodiversity and carbon stocks. Improving the sustainability of logging will be crucial for meeting climate targets. Carbon-based payment for ecosystem service ...

Legume-microbiome interactions unlock mineral nutrients in regrowing tropical forests.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America [Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A] 2021 Mar 16; Vol. 118 (11). Date of Electronic Publication: 2021 Mar 08.

Abstract: Legume trees form an abundant and functionally important component of tropical forests worldwide with N 2 -fixing symbioses linked to enhanced growth and recruitment in early secondary succession. However, it remains unclear how N 2 -fixers meet the hi...

Lianas maintain insectivorous bird abundance and diversity in a neotropical forest.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Ecology [Ecology] 2020 Dec; Vol. 101 (12), pp. e03176. Date of Electronic Publication: 2020 Nov 10.

Abstract: The spatial habitat heterogeneity hypothesis posits that habitat complexity increases the abundance and diversity of species. In tropical forests, lianas add substantial habitat heterogeneity and complexity throughout the vertical forest profile, which...
