The contribution of tree sprouts to the recovery of tropical moist forest in Eastern Paraguay after swidden agriculture was examined in 2–15 yr old forest fallows and compared with sprouting in mature forest. The proportion of stems of sprout origin, as individuals arising from stumps or lower parts of live stems (≤ 1 m), in the stem density declined from 59.5% (stems 1–4.9 cm DBH) and 21.0% (stems ≥ 5 cm DBH) in the young regrowth stands (2–5 yr old) to 32.9% and 19.6%, respectively in the… CONTINUE READING
