Because lowland rain forests of oceanic islands have almost always been destroyed soon after human colonization, there exist few quantitative descriptions of tree species composition and diversity in such forests. For this reason, the diversity and structure of a lowland tropical rain forest were studied on a 1-ha permanent plot on the oceanic island of La Réunion. A total of 1270 individuals of gbh ≥25 cm (girth at breast height), including at least 43 species, were mapped, measured and… CONTINUE READING
