Carbon emissions from tropical forest degradation caused by logging
The focus of land-use related efforts in developing countries to reduce carbon emissions has been on slowing deforestation, yet international agreements are to reduce emissions from bothExpand

GERMINATION ECOLOGY OF NEOTROPICAL PIONEERS: INTERACTING EFFECTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS AND SEED SIZE
Germination provides many potentially unrecognized sources of variation in the regeneration niche. In this study we relate germination requirements and seed size for 16 species of pioneer trees toExpand

Short dry spells in the wet season increase mortality of tropical pioneer seedlings
Variation in plant species performance in response to water availability offers a potential axis for temporal and spatial habitat partitioning and may therefore affect community composition inExpand

Effects of topographic position, leaf litter and seed size on seedling demography in a semi-deciduous tropical forest in Panamá
This study examined whether topography-induced gradients in water potential and leaf litter depth contribute to species coexistence in tropical forests through species-specific effects on seedlingExpand

Baseline GHG emissions from the agricultural sector and mitigation potential in countries of East and West Africa
The main question behind the work presented here is: How can agricultural greenhouse gas emissions be reduced or sequestration enhanced while maintaining and even increasing food supply. To addressExpand

Functional significance of photoblastic germination in neotropical pioneer trees: a seed's eye view
Summary 1. We investigated the relationship between seed mass and the suitability of microsites for germination for five small-seeded (< 2·4 mg fresh mass) photoblastic neotropical pioneer trees. WeExpand
