Effect of canopy openness on growth, specific leaf area, and survival of tree seedlings in a temperate rainforest of Chiloé Island, Chile
(Taylor & Francis, 2005)
Tree species of intermediate-shade tolerance may regenerate in canopy gaps as well as in the forest understory. However, seedling performance may vary widely between shaded and open habitats. In this study, we assessed the ...
Tree species regeneration in a mid-elevation, temperate rain forest in Isla de Chiloé, Chile
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1988)
The regeneration of canopy and subeanopy species in a mid-elevation, primary rain forest in the Coastal Range of Isla de Chiloé (42°30′S), in the cold-temperate region of Chile, was studied by comparing seedling and sapling ...
Modeling forest biomass using Very-High-Resolution data - Combining textural, spectral and photogrammetric predictors derived from spaceborne stereo images
(Italian Society of Remote Sensing, 2015)
Assessing the ability of image based point clouds captured from a UAV to measure the terrain in the presence of canopy cover
(MDPI AG, 2019)
Point clouds captured from Unmanned Aerial Systems are increasingly relied upon to provide information describing the structure of forests. The quality of the information derived from these point clouds is dependent on a ...
Tree seedlings respond to both light and soil nutrients in a Patagonian evergreendeciduous forest
(Public Library Science, 2018)
Leaf litter and irrigation can increase seed germination and early seedling survival of the recalcitrant-seeded tree Beilschmiedia miersii
(Blackwell Publishing, 2019)
Although regeneration of recalcitrant-seeded tree species can be affected by prolonged drought, especially in Mediterranean regions, little is known about the response of such species to varying site conditions. A field ...
Maintaining close canopy cover prevents the invasion of Pinus radiata: Basic ecology to manage native forest invasibility
(Public Library of Science, 2019)
Pine invasion is a global threat that is occurring in native forests of diverse regions of the world. This process is arising in a scenario of rapid forest deforestation and degradation. Therefore, elucidate which forests ...
Leaf litter is essential for seed survival of the endemic endangered tree pouteria splendens (Sapotaceae) from central Chile
(Copernicus Gesellschaft MBH, 2018)
Pouteria splendens (A. DC.) Kuntze, the Chilean lucumo, is an endemic tree and the only member of the Sapotaceae family in Chile. It is considered an endangered species as a consequence of its restricted distribution and ...
Rainfall interception and radiation regime in a plantain canopy
Esta publicación presenta algunos resultados sobre el microclima dentro de una plantación de plátano en relación con la epidemiología de la Sigatoka Negra. El hongo causante de esta enfermedad es muy sensible a la duración ...
