Assessment of tropical forest degradation by selective logging and fire using Landsat imagery
(Elsevier B.V., 2010-05-17)
Many studies have assessed the process of forest degradation in the Brazilian Amazon using remote sensing approaches to estimate the extent and impact by selective logging and forest fires on tropical rain forest. However, ...
Lidar-based assessment of forest edge effects across a degraded landscape in the Brazilian Amazon.
(In: CONFERENCE ON LIDAR APPLICATIONS FOR ASSESSING AND MANAGING FOREST ECOSYSTEMS, 14., 2015. La Grande Motte, France. Proceedings of SilviLaser... La Grande Motte, France: IGN, 2015., 2015)
Numerical simulation of surface forest fire in Brazilian Amazon
This paper investigates fire spread through surface fuels of the Brazilian Amazon by using a three-dimensional, fully transient, physics-based computer simulation approach. Computer simulations are obtained through the ...
Bird species of black water inundation forests in the Jau National Park (Amazonas state, Brazil): their contribution to regional species richness
(Kluwer Academic Publ, 2000-02-01)
We compared the relative contribution of blackwater inundation forest (igapo) and unflooded (terra firme) forest for regional bird species diversity in the lower Rio Negro region. For analyses of habitat preference we used ...
Screening of antibacterial extracts from plants native to the Brazilian Amazon Rain Forest and Atlantic Forest
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2004-03-01)
More than 20% of the world's biodiversity is located in Brazilian forests and only a few plant extracts have been evaluated for potential antibacterial activity. In the present study, 705 organic and aqueous extracts of ...
Diversity patterns and chronobiology of hawkmoths (Lepidoptera, Sphingidae) in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest
As biodiversity loss rapidly increases through habitat degradation in the Amazon rainforest, the need to characterize and understand the species diversity becomes even more important. In this study we used empirical and ...
Forest Policy Reform in Brazil
(SOC AMER FORESTERS, 2009)
Rapid deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon, caused by economic, social, and policy factors, has focused global and national attention on protecting this valuable forest resource. In response, Brazil reformed its federal ...
