Summary of "Forest disturbance and vector transmitted diseases in the lowland tropical rainforest of central Panama."

To explore possible changes in the community attributes of hematophagous insects as a function of forest disturbance. We compare the patterns of diversity and abundance, plus the behavioral responses of three epidemiologically distinct vector assemblages across sites depicting various levels of forest cover.

Without management interventions, endemic wet-sclerophyll forest is transitioning to rainforest in World Heritage listed K'gari (Fraser Island), Australia.

Wet-sclerophyll forests are unique ecosystems that can transition to dry-sclerophyll forests or to rainforests. Understanding of the dynamics of these forests for conservation is limited. We evaluated...

Biogeochemical recuperation of lowland tropical forest during succession.

High rates of land conversion and land use change have vastly increased the proportion of secondary forest in the lowland tropics relative to mature forest. As secondary forests recover following aban...

Robustness of the reproductive number estimates in vector-borne disease systems.

The required efforts, feasibility and predicted success of an intervention strategy against an infectious disease are partially determined by its basic reproduction number, R0. In its simplest form R0...

Habitat preference and den characterization of Indian Pangolin (Manis crassicaudata) in a tropical lowland forested landscape of southwest Sri Lanka.

The Indian pangolin (Manis crassicaudata) is under threat due to hunting for local consumption and illegal trafficking of scales and meat. The dearth of scientific studies on the ecology of the M. cra...

Soil drivers of local-scale tree growth in a lowland tropical forest.

Soil nutrients influence the distribution of tree species in lowland tropical forests, but their effect on productivity, especially at local scales, remains unclear. We used tree census, canopy occupa...
