Variation in aboveground tree live biomass in a central Amazonian Forest: effects of soil and topography

Variation in aboveground tree live biomass in a central Amazonian Forest: effects of soil and topography

Forest Ecology and Management 234(1/3): 85-96

We used forest inventories, conducted in seventy-two 1-ha permanent plots to assess the variation in tree and palm aboveground live biomass (AGLB), and its relation to soil gradients (texture and nutrients) and topography (altitude and slope). Our plots, located at the Reserva Florestal Adolpho Ducke, a 10 000-ha reserve in central Amazonia, near the city of Manaus, Brazil, were systematically spread over 64 km2.
