Shrubs as foundation species in a high tropical alpine ecosystem: a multi-scale analysis of plant spatial interactions
(Plant Ecology and Diversity, 2014-09)
Background: Studies on plant–plant interactions in alpine ecosystems show a strong bias for temperate vs. tropical latitudes and pay limited attention to the implications of biophysical heterogeneity beyond the local plant ...
Spatial relations and population structure of a dominant tree along a treeline ecotone in the Tropical Andes: interactions at gradient and plant-neighbourhood scales
(Plant Ecology and Diversity 6(3-4): 343-353, 2013)
Background: Studies in temperate mountains suggest that plant-plant interactions modulate tree establishment above the forest line. In tropical mountains worldwide this issue remains largely unexplored. Aims: To analyse ...
