Root biomass of a dry deciduous tropical forest in Mexico
The deciduous tropical dry forest at Chamela (Jalisco, Mexico) occurs in a seasonal climate with eight rainless (November through June) and four wet months (700 mm annual precipitation). The forestExpand

Phosphorus cycling in a Mexican tropical dry forest ecosystem
The study was conducted in five contiguous small watersheds (12–28 ha) gauged for long-term ecosystem research. Five 80 × 30 m plots were used for the study. We quantified inputs from the atmosphere,Expand

Long-term (33 years) rainfall and runoff dynamics in a tropical dry forest ecosystem in western Mexico: Management implications under extreme hydrometeorological events
Abstract Rainfall, runoff and sediment yield have been measured over three decades (1983–2015) in five contiguous small watersheds (12–28 ha) covered by mature tropical dry forest (TDF) at theExpand
