Drought and the consequences of El Niño in Borneo: a case study of figs

  title={Drought and the consequences of El Ni{\~n}o in Borneo: a case study of figs},
  author={Rhett D. Harrison},
  journal={Population Ecology},
Borneo has a perhumid climate but occasional severe droughts have an important impact. Droughts may affect the composition and size structure of plant communities through differential mortality or, via their impact on the availability of plant resources, affect plant–animal interactions. From January to April 1998, northern Borneo suffered a very severe drought linked to the El Niño Southern Oscillation event of 1997–1998. In this article, the impacts of this drought on the rain forest at… CONTINUE READING
