The most dominant invaders were the trees Cestrum auriculatum, Cedrela odorata and Cinchona pubescens, a vine Passiflora edulis, and the shrub Rubus niveus. Forest structure at the site suggests that further cyclical stand-level dieback, reportedly characteristic of S. pedunculata forests, is unlikely to occur in the near future… Expand
