    Understanding the causes and consequences of insect declines has become an important goal in ecology, particularly in the tropics, where most terrestrial diversity exists. Over the past 12 years, the ForestGEO Arthropod ...
  • Jackson, Eleanor E.; Wright, S. Joseph; Calderón, Osvaldo; Bullock, James M.; Oliver, Tom; Gripenberg, Sofia (2022)
    Pre-dispersal seed mortality caused by premature fruit drop is a potentially important source of plant mortality, but one which has rarely been studied in the context of tropical forest plants. Of particular interest is ...

  • Kibet, Staline; Nyangito, Moses; MacOpiyo, Laban; Kenfack, David (2021)
    The need to address wildlife conservation outside of protected areas has become more urgent than ever before to meet environmental and socio-economic goals. However, there is limited knowledge about how woody plants respond ...
  • Lucey, Noelle M.; Haskett, Eileen; Collin, Rachel (2021)
    Coastal deoxygenation is poorly documented in the tropics. When the Isthmus of Panama separated the Caribbean from the Pacific, sister lineages diverged and adapted to changing oxy-thermal conditions along both coasts. ...
  • Torchin, Mark E.; Freestone, Amy L.; McCann, Linda; Larson, Kristen; Schlöder, Carmen; Steves, Brian P.; Fofonoff, Paul; Repetto, Michele F.; Ruiz, Gregory M. (2021)
    Understanding the mechanisms of spatial variation of biological invasions, across local-to-global scales, has been a major challenge. The importance of evolutionary history for invasion dynamics was noted by Darwin, and ...

    Deep-water access is arguably the most effective, but under-studied, mechanism that plants employ to survive during drought. Vulnerability to embolism and hydraulic safety margins can predict mortality risk at given levels ...

    Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) and ectomycorrhizal (EcM) associations are critical for host-tree performance. However, how mycorrhizal associations correlate with the latitudinal tree beta-diversity remains untested. Using a ...
  • Kenfack, David; Arellano, Gabriel; Kibet, Staline; Kimuyu, Duncan; Musili, Paul (2021)
    Key message The high mortality and low recruitment of the myrmecophytic Acacia drepanolobium are not consistent with the demographic rates of monodominant species. The positive conspecific density dependence observed from ...
