Tropical Forests in Transition: Ecology of Natural and Anthropogenic Disturbance Processes. [Johann Georg Goldammer] -- In evolutionary time scales natural disturbances have affected the vegetation on Earth. During the Quaternary the forest biomes of the tropics were subjected to manifold disturbances.

Climate changes. The book introduces unique approaches to the study of Southeast Asia’s environmental Tropical forests in transition book and resource management under the influence of intensifying economic change in the region.

It also examines the slow erosion of Southeast Asia’s rich environment and addresses serious issues such as the decrease in biodiversity and tropical forests.

Forest transition refers to a geographic theory describing a reversal or turnaround in land-use trends for a given territory from a period of net forest area loss (i.e., deforestation) to a period of net forest area gain. The term "landscape turnaround" has also been used to represent a more general recovery of natural areas that is independent of biome type.

Temperate and Boreal Rainforests of the World is a call to action for an accord to protect the world's rainforests. It offers a global vision rooted in ecological science but written in common language useful for governments, decision makers, and conservation groups concerned about.

In recent decades, tropical forests have suffered extensive clearing, fragmentation, degradation, and depletion of biodiversity.

Once blanketing 12 percent of the world’s landmass, they now cover just 5 percent. While destruction continues in many places, tropical forest restoration is growing and may sequester as much as six gigatons of.

and Tucker, Richard by: 1. This multi-author book considers the disturbance ecology of tropical forests. The main subjects considered are palaeoecology, effects of modern human populations, and models of the future of tropical forests. There are 16 chapters: (1) Tropical forests in transition: ecology of natural and anthropogenic disturbance processes - an introduction (Goldammer, J.

G.; 45 ref.); (2) Palynological. Prolonged seasonal drought affects most of the tropics, including vast areas presently or recently dominated by 'dry forests'.

These forests have received scant attention, despite the fact that humans have used and changed them more than rain forests. This volume reviews the available information, often making contrasts with wetter forests. The world's dry forest heterogeneity of structure and 3/5(1).

A thorough understanding of paleoclimate and forest changes and the coupling of terrestrial ecology with atmospheric sciences will be imperative to predict the possible development of tropical forests in transition to a new climate-supported by: Review Quiz.

temperate. Deforestation, clearance, clearcutting or clearing is the removal of a forest or stand of trees from land which is then converted to a non-forest use. Deforestation can involve conversion of forest land to farms, ranches, or urban use. The most concentrated deforestation occurs in tropical rainforests.

Tree species richness typically recovers to pre-disturbance levels within just a few years in temperate forests and a few decades in tropical forests (Martin et al., ;Meli et al., Recent studies suggest that ecotones, transition zones between habitats, play an important role in the biodiversity of rainforests.

Ecotones bordering rainforests and savannas, secondary forests, plantations, and other forest types are evolutionary hotbeds where evolutionary competition may lead to.

Tropical forest restoration is widely considered to offer substantial climate change mitigation opportunities, if. Rain forest and jungle are terms that are often used synonymously but with little precision. The more meaningful and restrictive of these terms is rain forest, which refers to the climax or primary forest in regions with high rainfall (greater than m/70 in per year), chiefly but not exclusively found in the forests are significant for their valuable timber resources, and in.

Chapter 2, “Fertility,” addresses the question of how rainforest can support such abundance of life. While forests in temperate zones enjoy rich humus from the deep layers of deciduous leaf liter, rainforests relay on the root system of massive trees bound together by strands of fungal relationship, know as mycorrhizal associations, seems to operate in a similar fashion to Author: Kamran Nayeri.

Tropical forests provide many ecosystem and climatic services. This Review provides a synthesis of the effects of tropical deforestation on climate and implications for agriculture, both in the.

Tropical forests make an approximately neutral contribution to the global carbon cycle, with intact and recovering forests taking in as much carbon as is released through deforestation and Cited by:   Is active restoration the best approach to achieve ecological restoration success (the return to a reference condition, that is, old-growth forest) when compared to natural regeneration in tropical forests.

Our meta-analysis of studies demonstrated that natural regeneration surpasses active restoration in achieving tropical forest restoration success for all three biodiversity groups Cited by:   Agricultural expansion is a major driver of tropical deforestation (17 –20), but not all expansion results in the loss of intact forests: shrublands, pasture, logged or regrowing forests, degraded land, and shifting cultivation fields are all sources for new permanent agriculture (21 –23).

It is critical to understand the geographic and Cited by: As global climate change has a large effect on the carbon cycle of forests, it is very important to understand how forests in climate transition regions respond to climate change.

Specifically, the LPJ-GUESS (Lund-Potsdam-Jena General Ecosystem Simulator) model was used to simulate net ecosystem productivity (NEP) and soil heterotrophic respiration (Rh) dynamics of two forest ecosystems of Author: Siqi Liang, Shouzhang Peng, Yunming Chen. Most symbiotic (mutually positive) interactions in tropical forests involve relationships between plants and animals or between plants and microbes – fungi, bacteria, algae – described elsewhere in this volume.

Governments and international actors are increasingly understanding the connection of forests and land use. In some areas of the Amazon basin, countries are in the process of a forest transition, where economic growth leads to urbanization, forest recovery, and less pressure on existing forests.

Directly and indirectly, it has degraded the wildlife and ecological integrity of these tropical forests, prompting a need to evaluate the impact of current forest management practices and reconsider how best to preserve the integrity of the biosphere.

It is a valuable source of information for. The clearing of land for tropical food crops (cassava, yams) driven by the growing demands of expanding populations may explain most recent African deforestation in countries with tropical moist forests.
