1. Medium-term dynamics of tree species composition in response to silvicultural intervention intensities in a tropical rain forest

    Biological Conservation 191:577 (2015)

    Managed forests are important landscape components in tropical regions and may contribute to biodiversity conservation. Yet, managing tropical forests sustainably requires an understanding of ecosystem responses to silvicultural interventions. We investigated how silvicultural interven...

  3. Rapid tree carbon stock recovery in managed Amazonian forests.

    Current Biology 25(18):R787 (2015) PMID 26394096

    While around 20% of the Amazonian forest has been cleared for pastures and agriculture, one fourth of the remaining forest is dedicated to wood production. Most of these production forests have been or will be selectively harvested for commercial timber, but recent studies show that even soon af...
  4. Large trees as key elements of carbon storage and dynamics after selective logging in the Eastern Amazon

    Forest Ecology and Management 318:103 (2014)

    • We monitored above-ground tree (AGB) biomass of 18–1ha plots after logging in Eastern Amazon for 8years. • The mortality of large trees (DBH>60cm), was found to ...
  5. Above-ground biomass dynamics after reduced-impact logging in the Eastern Amazon

    Forest Ecology and Management 259(3):367 (2010)

    Changes in above-ground biomass (AGB) of 17 1ha logged plots of terra firme rain forest in the eastern Amazon (Brazil, Paragominas) were monitored for four years (2004–2008) after reduced-impact logging. Over the same time period, we also monitored two 0.5ha plots in adjacent unlogged ...
