Does the herb Acanthus pubescens and/or elephants suppress tree regeneration in disturbed Afrotropical forest?

Abstract

As a result of extensive deforestation, the survival of many tropical forest species may depend on disturbed forests. However, recent studies demonstrate that tree regeneration following logging can be slow, decreasing the conservation value of disturbed forests. Here we test whether the dominating herb, Acanthus pubescens, in the understory of logged… (More)
