In the Los Tuxtlas Biosphere Reserve, Veracruz, México, managers and farmers of two communities have promoted the cultivation of Chamaedorea hooperiana amid primary forest (PF) on the assumption that this would provide viable economic income while contributing to forest sustainability. The aim of this study was to test whether or not C. hooperiana is able to grow in PF without canopy management, and to compare its growth pattern to the one observed in secondary forest (SF) (acahual) managed by… CONTINUE READING
