Hyperdominance in the Amazonian Tree Flora
Introduction Recent decades have seen a major international effort to inventory tree communities in the Amazon Basin and Guiana Shield (Amazonia), but the vast extent and record diversity of theseExpand

Variation in aboveground tree live biomass in a central Amazonian Forest: Effects of soil and topography
We used forest inventories, conducted in seventy-two 1-ha permanent plots to assess the variation in tree and palm aboveground live biomass (AGLB), and its relation with soil gradients (texture andExpand

RAPELD: A MODIFICATION OF THE GENTRY METHOD FOR BIODIVERSITY SURVEYS IN LONG-TERM ECOLOGICAL RESEARCH SITES.
Our objectives were to develop a method that would be appropriate for long-term ecological studies, but that would permit rapid surveys to evaluate biotic complementarity and land-use planning inExpand

Estimating the global conservation status of more than 15,000 Amazonian tree species
Analyses of forest loss and protected areas suggest that 36 to 57% of Amazonian tree flora may qualify as “globally threatened.” Estimates of extinction risk for Amazonian plant and animal speciesExpand

Species Distribution Modelling: Contrasting presence-only models with plot abundance data
Species distribution models (SDMs) are widely used in ecology and conservation. Presence-only SDMs such as MaxEnt frequently use natural history collections (NHCs) as occurrence data, given theirExpand

Vertical distance from drainage drives floristic composition changes in an Amazonian rainforest
Background: Plant composition changes with topography and edaphic gradients that correlate with soil-water and nutrient availability. Data on soil water for the Amazon Basin are scarce, limiting theExpand
