The regional variation of aboveground live biomass in old‐growth Amazonian forests
The biomass of tropical forests plays an important role in the global carbon cycle, both as a dynamic reservoir of carbon, and as a source of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere in areas undergoingExpand

Habitat association among Amazonian tree species: a landscape‐scale approach
Summary 1Unravelling which factors affect where tropical trees grow is an important goal for ecologists and conservationists. At the landscape scale, debate is mostly focused on the degree to whichExpand

Increasing dominance of large lianas in Amazonian forests
Ecological orthodoxy suggests that old-growth forests should be close to dynamic equilibrium, but this view has been challenged by recent findings that neotropical forests are accumulating carbon andExpand

The above-ground coarse wood productivity of 104 Neotropical forest plots
The net primary production of tropical forests and its partitioning between long-lived carbon pools (wood) and shorter-lived pools (leaves, fine roots) are of considerable importance in the globalExpand

Drought-mortality relationships for tropical forests.
*The rich ecology of tropical forests is intimately tied to their moisture status. Multi-site syntheses can provide a macro-scale view of these linkages and their susceptibility to changing climates.Expand

Tropical forest tree mortality, recruitment and turnover rates: calculation, interpretation and comparison when census intervals vary
Summary 1 Mathematical proofs show that rate estimates, for example of mortality and recruitment, will decrease with increasing census interval when obtained from censuses of non-homogeneousExpand

Efficient plot-based floristic assessment of tropical forests
The tropical flora remains chronically understudied and the lack of floristic understanding hampers ecological research and its application for large-scale conservation planning. Given scarceExpand

Diversity and carbon storage across the tropical forest biome
Tropical forests are global centres of biodiversity and carbon storage. Many tropical countries aspire to protect forest to fulfil biodiversity and climate mitigation policy targets, but theExpand

Methods to estimate aboveground wood productivity from long-term forest inventory plots
Forest inventory plots are widely used to estimate biomass carbon storage and its change over time. While there has been much debate and exploration of the analytical methods for calculating biomass,Expand
