Liana abundance in a Puerto Rican forest



Liana abundance in a Puerto Rican forest



Forest Ecology and Management 190(1): 33-41



Liana (woody vine) abundance varies among tropical forests and is often high in disturbed forests. In two areas of subtropical wet forest in Puerto Rico, El Verde and Bisley, we recorded the density of liana stems >=1 cm dbh, and the percent of tree crowns (trees >=10 cm dbh) that lianas infested.
