The tree species pool of Amazonian wetland forests: Which species can assemble in periodically waterlogged habitats?
(PLoS ONE, 2018-05-01) [Artigo]
We determined the filtered tree species pool of Amazonian wetland forests, based on confirmed occurrence records, to better understand how tree diversity in wetland environments compares to tree diversity in the entire ...
Plant phenological research enhances ecological restoration
(Restoration Ecology, 2017-03-01) [Artigo]
While phenology data (the timing of recurring biological events) has been used to explain and predict patterns related to global change, and to address applied environmental issues, it has not been clearly identified as ...
Land cover classification of Lago Grande de Curuai floodplain (Amazon, Brazil) using multi-sensor and image fusion techniques
(Acta Amazonica, 2015-06-01) [Artigo]
Given the limitations of different types of remote sensing images, automated land-cover classifications of the Amazon várzea may yield poor accuracy indexes. One way to improve accuracy is through the combination of images ...
Effects of the flooding gradient on tree community diversity in varzea forests of the purus river, central Amazon, Brazil
(Biotropica, 2015-03-01) [Artigo]
Amazonian floodplain forests have remarkable variation in tree diversity and structure related to flood duration. We assessed how floodplain forests respond to the continuum flooding gradient and found that Fisher's values ...
Resilience and restoration of tropical and subtropical grasslands, savannas, and grassy woodlands
(Biological Reviews, 2019-04-01) [Artigo]
Despite growing recognition of the conservation values of grassy biomes, our understanding of how to maintain and restore biodiverse tropical grasslands (including savannas and open-canopy grassy woodlands) remains limited. ...
