Abstract Leaves of 208 trees were collected for isotopic analysis together with wood from 36 tree boles and 18 samples of fine litter from a terra-firme forest located at Samuel Ecological Reserve, Rondônia State, in the southwestern Amazon region. The range of δ13C values in leaves was from −28 to −36‰, with an average (±1 SD) of −32.1 ± 1.5‰, which was more negative than the δ13C values of bole samples (−28.4 ± 2.0‰) and fine litter (−28.7 ± 2.0‰). These values are within the range found for… CONTINUE READING
