How does the composition and diversity of established seedlings compare to that of larger size classes in tropical forests? 2. How do species abundances in the seedling layer vary with adult abundance and life history strategies&apo...

The potential for mycorrhizae to influence the diversity and structuring of plant communities depends on whether their affinities and effects differ across a suite of potential host species. In order to assess this potential for a tropical forest...

We used structural equation models to discriminate direct and indirect effects of soil structure on the abundance of the antlion Myrmeleon crudelis, a neuropteran larva that digs conical pits in soil to capture small arthropods. We proposed tha...

Induced changes in plant quality are hypothesized to reduce herbivore numbers and subsequent damage to the plant. The resultant decrease in herbivory may be due to direct negative impacts on herbivores, through the reduction in foliage quality as...

To evaluate the impact of fragmentation on forest regeneration, I measured the abundance of shade-tolerant, mature-phase tree seedlings (individuals 5-100 cm tall) in unfragmented and fragmented vegetation in three sites near Manaus, Brazil. The h...

Size of nucleus, chromosome number and radiosensitivity were correlated. It is postulated that since radiation has probably not been a selective factor affecting the evolution of higher pl...
