  2. 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...

    The high species richness of tropical forests has long been recognized, yet there remains substantial uncertainty regarding the actual number of tropical tree species. Using a pantropical tree inventory database from closed canopy forests, consisting of 657,630 trees belonging to 11,371 species,...
  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. Population structure of two low-density neotropical tree species under different management systems

    Forest Ecology and Management 280:31 (2012)

    Highlights ► In undisturbed forests both species presented a low density of individuals. ► The NTFP extraction areas exhibit the highest population densities for both species. ► Young trees of Dipteryx odorata showed a lower density in areas of seed harvesting. ► Timber extra...
  6. Reprint of: Multiple use management of tropical production forests: How can we move from concept to reality?

    Forest Ecology and Management 268:1 (2012)

    Highlights ► Trade-offs are complex and acute in pursuing multiple forest models. ► Social learning and multi-stakeholder dialogue is essential to this end. ► Management practitioners must take the long view and adapt. ► Managers can pay more heed to spatial planning. ► New f...

  8. 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 ...

  10. Reduced-impact logging in Indonesian Borneo: some results confirming the need for new silvicultural prescriptions

    Forest Ecology and Management 179(1):415 (2003)

    Reduced-impact logging (RIL) and conventional techniques (CNV) were compared in a mixed dipterocarp hill forest in East Kalimantan in three blocks of about 100 ha each. Damage was evaluated using pre- and post-harvesting assessments in 24 one-hectare sample plots. RIL techniques nearl...
  11. Harvesting intensity versus sustainability in Indonesia

    Forest Ecology and Management 108(3):251 (1998)

    In East Kalimantan (Indonesia), impacts of conventional (CNV) and reduced-impact logging (RIL) on forest ecosystems were compared on the basis of pre- and post-harvesting stand inventories. There was a positive and significant correlation between the proportion of trees damaged by felling a...
  12. An experimental comparison of different harvesting intensities with reduced-impact and conventional logging in East Kalimantan, Indonesia

    Forest Ecology and Management 94(1):209 (1997)

    Timber harvesting was investigated both in terms of commercial timber volume extracted and impact on residual stand. Conventional (CNV) and reduced impact logging (RIL) techniques were compared on the basis of pre- and post-harvesting stand inventories. The timber volume extracted averaged ...
