  1. 1. 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

  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.

    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.

    Author : Sebastian Backlund; [2013]
    Keywords : Dipterocarpaceae; Dipterocarps; dispersal; mother trees; natural regeneration; site factors; tropical rainforest; Dipterocarper; moderträd; naturlig föryngring; spridning; ståndortsfaktorer; tropisk regnskog;

    Abstract : In the tropics, logging and wild fire can result in degraded secondary forests with lower biodiversity than in the natural forest. One way to limit forest degradation is to rehabilitate the present large areas of secondary forests. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of ten year old enrichment plantings in a secondary dipterocarp rainforest : a case study of stem and species distribution in Sabah, Malaysia

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

    Author : Viveca Luc; [2010]
    Keywords : artificial gaps; Borneo; Dipterocarpaceae; forest degradation; forest fire; forest rehabilitation; liberation;

    Abstract : Large areas of forests in the tropical region have during the last decades been lost and converted to new land uses while other areas have been degraded into secondary forests. These secondary forests need to be restored and rehabilitation through enrichment planting and liberation may help to speed up the recovery process. READ MORE
