Positive response of seedlings from an old-growth grassland to soil quality improvement
TLDR
Evidence is provided that seedling production for the restoration of ironstone rupestrian grasslands can be more efficient and that these species also present reversible adjustment to cope with the poor soil conditions and are able to improve their performance in more fertile soils.
Acta Botanica Brasilica
Soil nutrients are one of the main drivers of plant species composition and distribution, mainly due to the role they play in plant survival and reproductive success. However, the nutritional
The role of native woody species in the restoration of Campos Rupestres in quarries
TLDR
This study demonstrates the practical efficiency of using some species native to harsh tropical ecosystems, e.g. Campos Rupestres, to restore quarry ecosystems in terms of their transplantation success, effects on both the establishment of herbaceous species and soil conservation.
Growing Periandra mediterranea on post-mining substrate: native Fabaceae with potential for revegetation of degraded rupestrian grasslands in Brazil
Recovery of degraded areas of rupestrian grasslands is hampered mainly by the limited knowledge regarding substrate management and the biology of native species suitable for revegetation of these
Seedling growth of the invader Calotropis procera in ironstone rupestrian fi eld and seasonally dry forest soils Crescimento de plântulas da espécie invasora Calotropis procera em solos de campos rupestres ferruginosos e fl oresta seca sazonal
The present study evaluated the growth, biomass allocation and nutrient content in seedlings of the invasive and exotic especies Calotropis procera (Aiton) W.T. Aiton (Apocynaceae), cultured in
Reproductive and vegetative phenology of endemic shrubs from Serra do Cipó rupestrian grasslands, Southeastern Brazil
The Brazilian “campos rupestres” (high-altitude grasslands) are very important on the world conservation scenario because of high species richness and endemism. These grasslands are regarded as
Growth and survival of Grindelia covasii A. Bartoli & Tortosa seedlings under water stress
TLDR
The lower tolerance of juvenile stages of G. covasii to severe water stress observed in this experiment, suggest that this species would require moist conditions for seedling establishment.
Soil factors effects on life history attributes of Leiothrix spiralis and Leiothrix vivipara (Eriocaulaceae) on rupestrian grasslands in Southeastern Brazil
TLDR
The findings of the present study show that the life history traits of Leiothrix spiralis and vivipara are linked to soil factors.
Soil factors effects on life history attributes of Leiothrix spiralis and Leiothrix vivipara (Eriocaulaceae) on rupestrian grasslands in Southeastern Brazil.
TLDR
The findings of the present study show that the life history traits of Leiothrix spiralis and L. vivipara are linked to soil factors.

BIOMASS ALLOCATION AND GROWTH OF TREE SEEDLINGS FROM TWO CONTRASTING BRAZILIAN SAVANNAS ASIGNACION DE BIOMASA Y CRECIMIENTO DE PLANTULAS DE ARBOLES EN DOS SABANAS BRASILERAS CONTRASTANTES
TLDR
The high values of root/shoot ratios and root elongation of most species is probably related to their capacity to withstand the dry season and resprout after fire.
The Role of Sprouts in the Restoration of Atlantic Rainforest in Southern Brazil
TLDR
Although sprouting as a reproductive strategy is rare, it is related to recovery after damage of an already existing plant and may be due to previous land use history (agriculture) and low soil fertility.

A Test of the Tilman Model of Plant Strategies: Relative Growth Rate and Biomass Partitioning
TLDR
There was a significant correlation opposite that predicted by Tilman's model between the maximum relative growth rate of a species and the allometric relationship between root growth and shoot growth, and an alternative explanation of these trends is offered, based on the concept of balanced growth.
Positive interactions between nitrogen-fixing legumes and four different neighbouring species in a biodiversity experiment
TLDR
The data suggest that the main driving force behind these facilitative interactions in plots containing legumes was reduced competition for soil nitrate (“nitrate sparing”), with apparent N transfer playing a secondary role.

Principles of Natural Regeneration of Tropical Dry Forests for Restoration
TLDR
The ecology of regeneration of tropical dry forests as a tool to restore disturbed lands is reviewed and resprouting ability is a noticeable mechanism of regeneration in dry forests and must be considered for restoration.
