Abstract Anthropogenic disturbances have led to a dramatic loss of biodiversity in the tropics. Habitat restoration can mitigate biodiversity loss but studies describing insect community recovery during tropical forest restoration are limited in Africa. Our aim was to compare the predictive power of tree community composition versus vegetation structure for butterfly community composition during tropical rain forest restoration. A fruit-feeding butterfly dataset from two primary and six… CONTINUE READING
