We use model results to examine potential climate impacts on the successional trajectories of these stands. High water stress reduced large tree growth but favoured growth of small trees. Drought also reduced tree survival for both large and small trees. Tree species with high wood density suffered lower growth reductions and had higher survival under water stress. High SLA magnified the negative effects of water stress on tree growth and survival. Across all tree sizes, high night-time temperatures did not influence growth or survival. Simulated successional trajectories under different climate scenarios using these results suggest that multi-annual droughts will have substantial impacts of the successional trajectories of tropical forests, leading to lower stem numbers, basal area and biomass. Sustained drought will also shift functional composition of second-growth forest by favouring species with low SLA which tend to dominate in late stages of succession. By incorporating trait-mediated effects on key drivers of tree demography and successional dynamics, our approach provides an integrated perspective on interspecific variation in vulnerability to drought and consequences for successional trajectories in tropical rainforests. Our results suggest that multi-annual drought stress will significantly alter structure, composition and dynamics of second-growth forests and, from a functional perspective, accelerate succession. However, this effect may be hampered by dispersal limitation of old-growth species into second-growth forests. © 2016 British Ecological Society.]]> Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:50:30 AEST ]]> Plant β-diversity

However, pairwise similarity indices do not completely characterize multiple-community similarity because the information shared by at least three communities is ignored. We propose a new and intuitive two-stage probabilistic approach, which leads to a general framework to simultaneously compare multiple communities based on abundance data. The approach is specifically used to extend the commonly used Morisita index and NESS (normalized expected species shared) index to the case of N communities. For comparing N communities, a profile of N - 1 indices is proposed to characterize similarity of species composition across communities. Based on sample abundance data, nearly unbiased estimators of the proposed indices and their variances are obtained. These generalized NESS and Morisita indices are applied to comparison of three size classes of plant data (seedling, saplings, and trees) within old-growth and secondary rain forest plots in Costa Rica. © 2008, The International Biometric Society.]]> Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:48:14 AEST ]]> Light-dependent seedling survival and growth of four tree species in Costa Rican second-growth rain forests http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22925 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:48:06 AEST ]]> Lianas and self-supporting plants during tropical forest succession http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22924 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:48:03 AEST ]]> Environmental gradients and the evolution of successional habitat specialization: A test case with 14 Neotropical forest sites http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21959 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:48:00 AEST ]]> Interacting effects of canopy gap, understory vegetation and leaf litter on tree seedling recruitment and composition in tropical secondary forests http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22923 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:47:57 AEST ]]> Biodiversity conservation in human-modified landscapes of Mesoamerica: Past, present and future http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22889 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:47:52 AEST ]]> Juvenile tree growth in relation to light availability in second-growth tropical rain forests http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22927 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:47:16 AEST ]]> Effects of vegetation cover on seedling and sapling dynamics in secondary tropical wet forests in Costa Rica http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22926 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:47:10 AEST ]]> Forest and landscape restoration: Toward a shared vision and vocabulary http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21196 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:47:07 AEST ]]> The potential of secondary forests http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21990 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:47:04 AEST ]]> Degradation and Recovery in Changing Forest Landscapes: A Multiscale Conceptual Framework http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:24180 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:46:58 AEST ]]> Beyond deforestation: Restoring forests and ecosystem services on degraded lands http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21992 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:46:55 AEST ]]> Genetic consequences of tropical second-growth forest regeneration http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21993 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:46:52 AEST ]]> Inner-crown microenvironments of two emergent tree species in a lowland wet forest http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21904 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:46:46 AEST ]]> Note from the editor http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21906 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:46:38 AEST ]]> Editorial: All in a day's work http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21907 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:46:34 AEST ]]> Beyond reserves: A research agenda for conserving biodiversity in human-modified tropical landscapes http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21908 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:46:30 AEST ]]> Composition and dynamics of functional groups of trees during tropical forest succession in northeastern Costa Rica http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21909 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:46:22 AEST ]]> Biodiversity and human well-being: An essential link for sustainable development http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21984 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:46:11 AEST ]]> Proximity is not a proxy for parentage in an animal-dispersed Neotropical canopy palm http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21985 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:46:05 AEST ]]> Mapping species composition of forests and tree plantations in northeastern Costa Rica with an integration of hyperspectral and multitemporal landsat imagery http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21986 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:45:59 AEST ]]> Impact of spatial variability of tropical forest structure on radar estimation of aboveground biomass http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21988 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:45:51 AEST ]]> Beyond carbon: Redefining forests and people in the global ecosystem services market http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:21989 Thu 14 Feb 2019 09:45:45 AEST ]]> When is a forest a forest?

This difference was generally smaller in small, disturbed forest patches. Species-specific abundance of seeds found beneath bat roosts was positively correlated with abundance of seedlings, suggesting that bat dispersal may influence seedling recruitment.
