  2. 2. Restoration of degraded tropical rainforests through gap and line planting : effects on soil and light conditions and seedling performance

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : Lukas Holmström; [2016]
    Keywords : enrichment planting; seedling survival; seedling height; dipterocarp; light; stödplantering; plantprestanda; överlevnad; höjd; dipterocarp; ljuskvantitet;

    Abstract : Enrichment plantings are a common way to restore structures and diversity lost through degradation of tropical rainforests. Large areas are degraded every year, and although disturbance over large areas seldom are homogenous, few, if any studies have compared effects of enrichment planting treatments in forests with varying degradation.

  3. 3. Degradation and restoration method interact to affect the performance of planted seedlings in tropical rainforest restoration : evidence from plant functional traits

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : Julia Mellåker; [2016]
    Keywords : Dipterocarpaceae; enrichment planting; INIKEA; secondary rainforest; hjälpplantering; sekundär regnskog;

    Abstract : A common action to improve or save biodiversity in the tropics is restoration of degraded rainforest. To understand the complex ecological structures of the forest and adapt the restoration actions after them, studies have focused on characterizing species with functional traits. READ MORE

  4. 4. Restoring biodiversity in degraded secondary rain forest in Sabah, Malaysia : natural regeneration of trees after restoration treatments

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : Sara Waern; [2015]
    Keywords : skogsbrand; selektiv avverkning; Dipterocarpaceae; assisterad naturlig föryngring ANR ; forest fire; selective logging; Dipterocarpaceae; assisted natural regeneration ANR ;

    Abstract : Many tropical rain forests has been lost or degraded as a result of human activities and environmental factors. Since the level of biodiversity is high in the tropics, maintaining these areas is of great importance. Forests like these are often assumed to benefit from forest restoration and rehabilitation.
