Local abundance and regional distribution of tree species of forest fragments in Brazil: a test of models.

Abstract

Patterns of local abundance and regional distribution of tree species were analyzed on three spatial scales and compared with those predicted by Hanski's 1982 original core-satellite model, Brown's 1984 niche-based model, and Tokeshi's 1992 model. Data were collected in seven forest fragments dispersed over approximately 7200 km2, remnants of a former… (More)
