Carbon stocks in primary and secondary tropical forests in Singapore
Tropical forests contain large reserves of carbon that are vulnerable to perturbation linked to human activities, including deforestation and climate change. Accurate estimates of forest carbon areExpand
Abstract.— Plants inhabited by ants (myrmecophytes) have evolved in a diversity of tropical plant lineages. Macaranga includes approximately 300 paleotropical tree species; in western Malesia thereExpand
Genetic Diversity of the Wild Banana Musa acuminata Colla in Malaysia as Evidenced by AFLP
Musa acuminata Colla (Musaceae), the wild progenitor of the cultivated banana, is highly variable in Malaysia and presents several unresolved nomenclatural problems. AFLP was employed to distinguishExpand
CTFS-ForestGEO: a worldwide network monitoring forests in an era of global change.
Global change is impacting forests worldwide, threatening biodiversity and ecosystem services including climate regulation. Understanding how forests respond is critical to forest conservation andExpand
Global importance of large‐diameter trees
Aim: To examine the contribution of large-diameter trees to biomass, stand structure, and species richness across forest biomes. Location: Global. Time period: Early 21st century. Major taxa studied:Expand
UAV LiDAR for below-canopy forest surveys
Remote sensing tools are increasingly being used to survey forest structure. Most current methods rely on GPS signals, which are available in above-canopy surveys or in below-canopy surveys of openExpand

Slow recovery of a secondary tropical forest in Southeast Asia
Abstract Understanding the structure and diversity of secondary tropical forests is important as they constitute an increasing proportion of tropical landscapes. However, few studies haveExpand
Resilience of a forest fragment exposed to long-term isolation in Singapore
Background: Fragmentation can fundamentally alter the structure of tropical forests. However, the impacts of fragmentation may vary significantly among regions and lead to different outcomes. Aims:Expand
