Tree size in the first period of measure was a good predictor for both tree growth and tree status in the next period, with larger trees tending to grow faster and having a greater chance of being harvested, and a lower possibility of mortality than smaller trees. Shade-intolerant trees were both more likely to be harvested, and had a higher probability of death, than shade-tolerant individuals. Native species and exotic species were equally likely to have been lost from the plots between measurement periods. However, shade-tolerant native trees were likely to grow faster than the others at age 10+ years. Our findings suggest that species traits (e.g. shade tolerance) could play an important role in optimizing species composition for this type of plantation. Shade-intolerant species with rapid early growth could contribute early income for farmers in mixed plantings where some]]> Thu 20 Jun 2019 17:14:10 AEST ]]> Biodiversity-productivity relationships in small-scale mixed-species plantations using native species in Leyte province, Philippines http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:12636 Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:57:55 AEST ]]> Designing Mixed Species Tree Plantations for the Tropics: Balancing Ecological Attributes of Species with Landholder Preferences in the Philippines http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:12897 5 cm dbh decreased from an initial total of 76 species to 65 species at the end of study period. But, at the same time, some new species reached the size class threshold and were recruited into the canopy layer. There was a substantial decline in tree density from an estimated stocking of about 5000 trees per ha at the time of planting to 1380 trees per ha at the time of the first measurement; the density declined by a further 4.9% per year. Changes in composition and stand structure were indicated by a marked shift in the Importance Value Index of species. Over six years, shade-intolerant species became less important and the native shade-tolerant species (often Dipterocarps) increased in importance. Based on how the Rainforestation Farming plantations developed in these early years, we suggest that mixed-species plantations elsewhere in the humid tropics should be around 1000 trees per ha or less, that the proportion of fast growing (and hence early maturing) trees should be about 30–40% of this initial density and that any fruit tree component should only be planted on the plantation margin where more light and space are available for crowns to develop.]]> Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:57:53 AEST ]]> Wood density: A tool to find complementary species for the design of mixed species plantations http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:13758 Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:57:51 AEST ]]> Effects of fragmentation and landscape variation on tree diversity in post-logging regrowth forests of the Southern Philippines http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:19290 Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:57:47 AEST ]]> Designing mixed species systems for community and smallholder forestry in the tropics to achieve multiple objectives http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:14984 Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:57:41 AEST ]]> Without management interventions, endemic wet‐sclerophyll forest is transitioning to rainforest in World Heritage listed K’gari (Fraser Island), Australia http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:28060 Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:54:10 AEST ]]> Next-generation tropical forests: reforestation type affects recruitment of species and functional diversity in a human-dominated landscape http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:20444 Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:09:02 AEST ]]> Tree leaf trade-offs are stronger for sub-canopy trees: leaf traits reveal little about growth rates in canopy trees http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:27170 Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:08:23 AEST ]]> Tropical secondary forests regenerating after shifting cultivation in the Philippines uplands are important carbon sinks http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:18875 Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:08:00 AEST ]]> Co-benefits of biodiversity and carbon from regenerating secondary forests in the Philippines uplands: implications for forest landscapes restoration http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:20412 Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:07:55 AEST ]]> Using Leading and Lagging Indicators for FLR http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:28650 Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:07:43 AEST ]]> Plant Functional Traits for Species Selection in Tropical Subsistence Agroforestry Systems http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:28652 Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:07:20 AEST ]]> Leading and lagging impact indicators for evaluation and adaptive management of forest restoration http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:28688 Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:06:46 AEST ]]> Rapid Recovery of tree diversity over forest structure in post-kaingin secondary forests in the upland Philippines http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:15101 Thu 20 Jun 2019 16:06:36 AEST ]]> Neglecting conservation value of degraded tropical landscapes?
