      Quesada-Monge, Ruperto; Letcher, Susan; Lasky, Jesse; Chazdon, Robin; Norden, Natalia; Wright, Joseph; Meave, Jorge; Muñoz, Rodrigo; Romero-Pérez, Eunice; Andrade, Ana; Andrade, José Luis; Balvanera, Patricia; Becknell, Justin; Bentos, Tony; Radika, Bhaskar; Bongers, Frans; Boukili, Vanessa; Brancalion, Pedro; César, Ricardo; Clark, Deborah; Clark, David; Craven, Dylan; DeFrancesco, Alexander; Dupuy, Juan; Finegan, Bryan; Pérez-García, Eduardo; González-Jiménez, Eugenio; Hall, Jefferson; Harms, Kyle; Hernández-Stefanoni, José Luis; Hietz, Peter; Kennard, Deborah; Killeen, Timothy; Susan, Laurance; Lebrija-Trejos, Edwin; Lohbeck, Madelon; Martínez-Ramos, Miguel; Massoca, Paulo; Mesquita, Rita; Mora, Francisco; Muscarella, Robert; Paz, Horacio; Pineda-García, Fernando; Powers, Jennifer; Rodríguez, Ricardo; Sandor, Manette; Sanaphre-Villanueva, Lucía; Schüller, Elisabeth; Swenson, Nathan; Tauro, Alejandra; Uriarte, María; Van-Breugel, Michiel; Vargas-Ramírez, Orlando; Viani, Ricardo; Wendt, Amanda; Williamson, Bruce (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2015-09)
      Successional gradients are ubiquitous in nature, yet few studies have systematically examined the evolutionary origins of taxa that specialize at different successional stages. Here we quantify successional habitat ...
    • Evaluation of biodeterioration and the dynamic modulus of elasticity of wood in ten fast-growing tropical species in costa rica exposed to field testing 

      Moya-Roque, Róger (Statny Drevarsky Vyskumny Ustav, 2015)
      In tropical regions, it is possible to produce a large variety of timber species in plantation conditions. However, wood from these trees has low natural durability. Biodeterioration and the dynamic modulus of elasticity ...
    • Landscape-scale controls on aboveground forest carbon stocks on the Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica 

      Taylor, Philip; Asner, Gregory; Dahlin, Kyla; Anderson, Christopher; Knapp, David; Martin, Roberta; Mascaro, Joseph; Chazdon, Robin; Cole, Rebecca; Wanek, Wolfgang; Hofhansl, Florian; Vilchez-Alvarado, Braulio; Townsend, Alan; Malavassi-Ortíz, Edgar (Public Library of Science, 2015-06)
      Tropical forests store large amounts of carbon in tree biomass, although the environmental controls on forest carbon stocks remain poorly resolved. Emerging airborne remote sensing techniques offer a powerful approach to ...
    • Overcoming obstacles to sharing data on tree allometric equations 

      Cifuentes-Jara, Miguel; Matieu, Henry; Réjou-Méchain, Maxime; López, Omar; Wayson, Craig; Michel-Fuentes, José María; Castellanos-López, Edwin; Zapata-Cuartas, Mauricio; Piotto, Daniel; Alice-Guier, Federico; Castañeda-Lombis, Héctor (Springer-Verlag France, 2015-09)
      Advances in ecology face the complexity of ecosystems with dynamics longer than a single scientist’s career. In forestry and REDD+ practice, in particular, our ability to understand forest ecosystem dynamics and to manage ...
