Light environment in tropical rain forest of central Amazonia


Light environment in tropical rain forest of central Amazonia



Acta Amazonica 1(2): 37-49



ISSN/ISBN: 0044-5967

Light intensities were studied in (a) riverain, (b) 'Carrasco', and (c) terra firma rain forest, all in the Ducke Forest Reserve in central Amazonia; (b) is a vegetation type intermediate between (a) and (c). The relative frequencies of seven degrees of light intensity were calculated for different strata of all three forest types during three different periods of daylight. The results are presented and discussed.
