Edge effects on remnant vegetation of very humid tropical forest in Northern Costa Rica, and their implications for conservation and management



Edge effects on remnant vegetation of very humid tropical forest in Northern Costa Rica, and their implications for conservation and management



Revista Forestal Centroamericana (38): 39-43



The present study aimed at detecting edge effects on the composition, structure and diversity of five very humid tropical forest remnants with and without disturbance due to timber harvesting, located in a pastureland matrix. Edges were formed more than 20 years ago. The work was carried out in the canton of Sarapiqui, Heredia Province, Costa Rica, in a zone of low to moderate fertility soils.
