Abstract

Tree planting is a common strategy for forest restoration. The use of mid- and late-successional species is less common, but could accelerate succession, enhance diversity and secure their presence. In this study, we determined the survival and growth of 559 saplings from nine native mid- and...

Abstract

How to best restore highly diverse tropical forests to deliver an affordable and effective legacy of biodiversity remains an ecological dilemma. We investigated both vegetation recovery and financial outcomes of forest restoration in applied nucleation and high-diversity plantation plots in the...

Abstract

Thinning and understory removal, which are commonly used in forest management, are expected to affect litter decomposition. However, little is known about how litter decomposition rates change in stands subject to both thinning and understory removal. This knowledge gap is urgent to be filled...

Under the Bonn Challenge, the government of Malawi committed to reforest over 30% of the country by 2030, but at least in the south, few trees planted under government projects survive. To understand why these efforts fail and how to turn the tide, eight focus groups with stakeholders from across...

AbstractFull Text

Natural secondary forests can develop vertical structures of varying complexity. A dominant view in forest ecology is that naturally restored secondary forests tend to have greater structural heterogeneity than managed secondary forests. Structural integrity, however, may differ among forest...
