NEST‐SITE LIMITATION IN COFFEE AGROECOSYSTEMS: ARTIFICIAL NESTS MAINTAIN DIVERSITY OF ARBOREAL ANTS
TLDR
Investigation of occupancy, species richness, and species composition of arboreal twig-nesting ants using natural and artificial nests in farms either with high or low diversity and density of shade trees indicates that, although ants are not strongly nest-site limited in coffee agroecosystems, nest limitation increases somewhat with increasing management intensification.
Population and genetic structure of the West African rain forest liana Ancistrocladus korupensis (Ancistrocladaceae).
TLDR
Ecological and genetic data indicate that the A. korupensis population is dominated by canopy-climbing individuals, and the occurrence of rare, private alleles in most of the sites, low overall population size and density, and low availability of individuals for recruitment into the adult stage class are important considerations for the rational management.
Patterns of Genetic Variation in Woody Plant Species in the Missouri Ozark Forest Ecosystem Project
TLDR
The pattern of genetic diversity and inbreeding is heterogeneous across MOFEP study sites with land use history of specific sites being at least one of the contributing factors Nonetheless, this heterogeneity has not created any excessive biases for the experimental design of the management treatment experiment ofMOFEP.
Increased competition may promote species coexistence
TLDR
It is suggested that if the classical equations are formulated more realistically with attendant nonlinearities, the orthodoxy breaks down and higher levels of competition may actually increase the likelihood that species will avoid competitive exclusion.
Detecting successional changes in tropical forest structure using GatorEye drone‐borne lidar
Drone‐based remote sensing is a promising new technology that combines the benefits of ground‐based and satellite‐derived forest monitoring by collecting fine‐scale data over relatively large areas
