Combining ALOS/PALSAR derived vegetation structure and inundation patterns to characterize major vegetation types in the Mamiraua Sustainable Development Reserve, Central Amazon floodplain, Brazil
(Wetlands Ecology And Management, 2015-02-01) [Artigo]
Remote sensing studies of vegetation cover and hydrologic dynamics in Amazonian wetlands have been mostly limited temporally or spatially, and the distribution and spatial configuration of Amazonian varzea habitats remains ...
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 ...
