Key messageGrowth rings are investigated in trees harvested in the second cutting cycle in southern Amazonia and have important implications for dendrochronological studies and for forest management.AbstractIn the southern Brazilian Amazon, upland moist forests have been managed based on a polycyclic system, which cutting cycle (CC) varies from 25 to 35 years, and the minimum logging diameter (MLD) is 50 cm for all species. Many forests logged during the 1970s are being prepared for the second… CONTINUE READING
