Germination biology and seedling growth of Clusia hilariana Schltdl., a dominant CAM-tree of drought-prone sandy coastal plains
The spatial and temporal fluctuations of water availability can be an obstacle for recruitment of many species in the restinga and might restrict seed germination and seedling growth in specificExpand

Seed Dispersal Phenology and Germination Characteristics of a Drought‐Prone Vegetation in Southeastern Brazil
Seed germination is determined by the environmental conditions typical of a habitat and also by the geographical origin of the source species pool. During the Quaternary, Brazilian Atlantic RainExpand

Soil seed bank in a patchy vegetation of coastal sandy plains in southeastern Brazil
Large seed banks have been found in tropical dry forests and also in habitats with high seasonality in rainfall. However, patchily structured vegetation could induce great spatial variation in theExpand

Germination niche breadth differs in two co-occurring palms of the Atlantic Rainforest
Abstract Niche germination breadth may determine species occurrence under distinct environmental conditions. We choose Euterpe edulis and Lytocaryum weddellianum to evaluate germination niche breadthExpand

Ample germination ability under wide‐ranging environmental conditions in a common understory tropical palm
Although palms play an important ecological role in tropical forests, characteristics related to their germinative niche remain largely unknown. We evaluated the seed germination characteristics ofExpand

USING THE VARIANCES OF MICROCLIMATE VARIABLES TO DETERMINE EDGE EFFECTS IN SMALL ATLANTIC RAIN FOREST FRAGMENTS , SOUTH-EASTERN BRAZIL
forest fragmentation is concerned with understanding of the environmental aspects that can induce changes in biodiversity. Despite its importance, there are relatively few studies focusing on theExpand

DIFFERENTIAL PHENOLOGICAL SHIFTS IN EUTERPE EDULIS MART. DURING AN EXTREMELY DRY YEAR ALONG AN ALTITUDINAL GRADIENT
Temporal variation in rainfall and temperature, which is likely to increase in frequency due to climate change, may cause changes not only in the endogenous rhythms of organisms, but also in theirExpand
Does regenerative strategy vary between populations? A test using a narrowly distributed Atlantic Rainforest palm species
Germination rate and seed mass are important factors determining the proportion of seedlings that become established in a habitat, especially where resources are limited and under adverseExpand
