Tree survival is a critical driver of stand dynamics, influencing forest structure and composition. Many local-scale drivers (tree size, abiotic and biotic factors) have been proposed as being important in explaining patterns of tree survival, but their contributions are still unknown. We examined the relative importance of these local drivers on tree(More)
BACKGROUND Ecologists have been monitoring community dynamics with the purpose of understanding the rates and causes of community change. However, there is a lack of monitoring of community dynamics from the perspective of phylogeny. METHODS/PRINCIPLE FINDINGS We attempted to understand temporal phylogenetic turnover in a 50 ha tropical forest (Barro(More)
Eight microsatellite loci were isolated from enriched genomic libraries of Aquilaria sinensis (Lour.) Gilg. Thirty-one individuals from a wild population were tested for their polymorphisms. The number of alleles per microsatellite locus ranged from 4 to 10. The expected (H E) and observed (H O) heterozygosities varied from 0.4531 to 0.8372 and 0.4000 to(More)
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY We developed microsatellite markers to investigate the level of genetic diversity within and among populations of the endemic shrub Sauvagesia rhodoleuca in China. • METHODS AND RESULTS Ten polymorphic microsatellite loci were identified in five populations. The number of alleles per locus varied from 2 to 16. Observed(More)
