Seedling dynamics over thirty-two years in a tropical rain forest tree.

Connell, John; Green, P

Description

We examined patterns of seedling recruitment and their underlying mechanisms in a population of Chrysophyllum sp. nov. (Sapotaceae), a shade-tolerant canopy species in mature tropical rainforest in Queensland, Australia. We considered spatial scales ranging from 1 m2 to 1 ha, and temporal scales ranging from 1 to 32 yr. Over the 32-yr study period there were six episodes of very high seedling recruitment (masts) at intervals ranging from 4 to 10 yr. Less than 2% of new recruits were found in...[Show more]
