Overview

The tropics is mostly a region of severe seasonal droughts. Until recently tropical dry forests were more widespread than rain forests, but have received scant attention. This volume provides the first review of dry forests, including regional overviews, neotropical biogeography and palaeontology, plant ecology (structure, physiology, phenology, reproduction and herbivory), and ecosystem functions (biomass, nutrient cycling, below-ground dynamics and trace gas emission). Exploitation schemes and non-timber products also are surveyed.
