NATURAL REGENERATION UNDER FOREST PLANTATIONS: "GREEN DESERTS" OR MILIEU FOR BIODIVERSITY?
(Centro Pesquisas Florestais, UfsmSanta MariaBrasil, 2010)
Sugarcane and Eucalyptus plantation equally limit the movement of two forest-dependent understory bird species
Habitat fragmentation results in landscape configuration, which affects the species that inhabit it. As a consequence, natural habitat is replaced by different anthropogenic plantation types (e.g. pasture, agriculture, ...
Plantation politics. Forest plantations in development
(Earthscan Publication, 2018)
Rewilding clearcuts: shrub vegetation as a facilitator of movement of a forest specialist
Replacement of native forests by exotic monoculture plantations is the principal driver of land change in central Chile; it reduces the richness and abundance of native mammals. The presence of shrub vegetation in mature ...
Enhancing Avifauna in Commercial Plantations
The occurrence of fauna in commercial plantations is often associated with structural complexity. Through ameta-analysis, we tested whether the structural complexity of plantations could enhance bird species assemblages ...
Seed rain, seed predation and germination of native species in Pinus radiata plantations in south-central Chile: effects of distance to native forest and presence of understory
Native vegetation development in forestry plantations may depend on seed dispersal, seed predation and seed germination. These processes may depend on distance to native forest fragments and presence of understory. In this ...
Landscape context of plantation forests in the conservation of tropical mammals
Plantation forests have been expanding in many tropical and subtropical environments. Howerver, even when they replace less wildlife friendly land uses such as pastures and annual crops, the biodiversity levels of pristine ...
Avian responses to fragmentation of the Maulino Forest in central Chile
Depending on the mosaic of habitats that is created, forest fragmentation can reduce the abundance and diversity of forest birds. Temperate deciduous forests in South America are rapidly being replaced by pine plantations, ...
Complementary functions of natural forests and plantations
(CATIE, Turrialba (Costa Rica), 1979)
