Estimating aboveground biomass in forest and oil palm plantation in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo using ALOS PALSAR data
- Alexandra C Morel, Seyed M. Saatchi, +5 authors R. Ong
- Environmental Science, Chemistry
- 1 November 2011
Conversion of tropical forests to oil palm plantations in Malaysia and Indonesia has resulted in large-scale environmental degradation, loss of biodiversity and significant carbon emissions. For both… Expand
Ecological information from spatial patterns of plants: insights from point process theory
Summary 1. This article reviews the application of some summary statistics from current theory of spatial point processes for extracting information from spatial patterns of plants. Theoretical… Expand
The interpretation and misinterpretation of mortality rate measures
Ecologists frequently measure and compare mortality rates and other count-dependent rates of change. The simplest measures employ mortality counts for predetermined populations over a defined census… Expand
CTFS-ForestGEO: a worldwide network monitoring forests in an era of global change.
- K. Anderson-Teixeira, S. Davies, +105 authors J. Zimmerman
- Environmental Science, Business
- Global change biology
- 1 February 2015
Global change is impacting forests worldwide, threatening biodiversity and ecosystem services including climate regulation. Understanding how forests respond is critical to forest conservation and… Expand
Factors explaining alien plant invasion success in a tropical ecosystem differ at each stage of invasion
Summary 1. Understanding why some alien plant species become invasive when others fail is a fundamental goal in invasion ecology. We used detailed historical planting records of alien plant species… Expand
Neighborhood and community interactions determine the spatial pattern of tropical tree seedling survival.
Factors affecting survival and recruitment of 3531 individually mapped seedlings of Myristicaceae were examined over three years in a highly diverse neotropical rain forest, at spatial scales of 1-9… Expand
Topographic position affects the water regime in a semideciduous tropical forest in Panamá

- Environmental Science
- Plant and Soil
- 25 March 2002
The effects of topographic position on water regime in a semideciduous tropical forest on Barro Colorado Island in Panamá were assessed by measuring soil matric potential using the filter paper… Expand
Evidence of foliar aluminium accumulation in local, regional and global datasets of wild plants.
• High foliar concentrations of aluminium (Al) have been reported in numerous plant species, but progress on the understanding of the functional significance of this trait is constrained by the… Expand
Species–habitat associations in a Sri Lankan dipterocarp forest
Forest structure and species distribution patterns were examined among eight topographically defined habitats for the 205 species with stems≥ 1 cm dbh inhabiting a 25-ha plot in the Sinharaja rain… Expand
Spatial patterns reveal negative density dependence and habitat associations in tropical trees.
Understanding how plant species coexist in tropical rainforests is one of the biggest challenges in community ecology. One prominent hypothesis suggests that rare species are at an advantage because… Expand
