Composition and aboveground tree biomass of a dry semi-evergreen forest on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula
Abstract Forest biomass estimates are used to help quantify pools and flux of greenhouse gases (e.g., CO2–C) from the terrestrial biosphere to the atmosphere associated with land-use and land coverExpand

The impact of Hurricane Gilbert on trees, litterfall, and woody debris in a dry tropical forest in the northeastern Yucatan Peninsula
Hurricane Gilbert struck the northeastern portion of the Yucatan Peninsula in an area where we have been conducting studies of the vegetation and avifauna in a dry tropical forest since 1984. AllExpand

Decomposition and mass of woody detritus in the dry tropical forests of the Northeastern Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
The decomposition rates and mass of fine ( 10-cm-diameter) woody detritus were measured in the dry tropical forests of the northeastern Yucatan Peninsula. The smallest mass of woody detritus wasExpand

Host tree utilization by vascular epiphytes in a seasonally inundated forest (tintal) in Mexico
We studied fifteen species of vascular epiphytes in a 1200 m 2 sample of seasonally inundated forest (tintal) near Cancun, Mexico. The community of epiphytes occupied 14 species of host tree. WhileExpand

Tree-Epiphyte-Ant Relationships in the Low Inundated Forest of Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, Quintana Roo, Mexico'
Research on epiphyte (9 bromeliads and 1 orchid) relationships with host trees, and with arthropods, especially ants, was undertaken in the low inundated forest of Quintana Roo, Mexico. EpiphyteExpand
