Multinomial logistic models of land use/land cover in montane Costa Rica and landscape pattern analysis showed that relative to agriculture, secondary forest occurred closer to old-growth forest, further from roads, in forest reserves, and at higher elevations.
Collinearity between explanatory variables yielded simple multivariate models; proportion of surrounding old growth Cited by: The montane tropical study area was located in the Talamanca Mountain Range in southern Costa Rica.
The Kappa accuracy for this classification was 83%. I also examined temporal patterns of spectral responses for various land covers and whether using digital data from multiple decades improved classification accuracy.
In the s, he expanded his tropical horizons with research projects and students in the tropical forests Brazil, Ecuador, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, Thailand, The Philippines, and China (Yunnan Province). A main focus of his work and those of his students was the impact of forestry and agriculture on tropical forests.
The literature on tropical secondary forests, defined as those resulting from human disturbance (e.g. logged forests and forest fallows), is reviewed to address questions related to their extent, rates of formation, ecological characteristics, values and uses to humans, and potential for management.

We synthesized the results of 5 years research on tropical montane forest recovery in abandoned pastures in Costa Rica to address the following questions: (1) What factors limit tropical forest recovery in abandoned pastures. and (2) How can we use this information to design strategies to facilitate ecosystem recovery.

The landscape was origi-nally covered by Pacific pre-montane humid forest, but after massive deforestation 40 to 60 years ago, only app. 30% of landscape remains forested, one-third of which is secondary forest (Zahawi et al., ). The disturbance and destruction of the old-growth forests of the tropics continue to monopolize attention in international fora and the popular media, but a steadily growing land area is covered by secondary forest developing on sites which have been deforested and then abandoned by their owners.

This volume represents a uniquely comprehensive overview of our current knowledge on tropical montane cloud forests. 72 chapters cover a wide spectrum of topics including cloud forest distribution, climate, soils, biodiversity, hydrological processes, hydrochemistry and water quality, climate change impacts, and cloud forest conservation, management, and restoration/5(3).

This study took place on a farm near Monteverde, Costa Rica, which is in the tropical lower montane wet forest life zone (Holdridge, ). The farm is approximately meters in elevation, and receives 2–3 meters of rainfall annually.
Butterfly sampling occurred at the end of the dry season, in April, Rapid biological changes are expected to occur on tropical elevational gradients as species migrate upslope or go extinct in the face of global warming.
We established a series of 9 1-ha plots in old-growth tropical rainforest in Costa Rica along a m relief elevational gradient to carry out long-term monitoring of tropical rain forest structure, dynamics and tree growth. tropical ecology and inform management strategies to facilitate recovery of these ecosystems.
Here we syn-thesize the results of research on tropical montane for-est recovery in abandoned pasture in Costa Rica to ad-dress the following questions: (1) What factors limit tropical forest.
Book Description: The beautiful tropical dry forest of northwest Costa Rica, with its highly seasonal rainfall and diversely vegetated landscape, is disappearing even more rapidly than Costa Rica's better-known rain forest, primarily because it has been easier to convert to agriculture.
Two billion ha have been identified globally for forest restoration. Our meta-analysis encompassing study landscapes worldwide reveals forest .(Van Uffelen, ; Kennis and De Vries, ); and in a Bolivian Lower Tropical Montane Forest ( m a.s.l) Dystrudepts were identified as the dominant soil type (Bautista-Cruz and Castillo, ).
