Tree regeneration in a New Zealand rain forest influenced by disturbance and drainage interactions
(Opulus Press, 2005-08)
Question: Does canopy tree regeneration response to different large disturbances vary with soil drainage? Location: Old-growth conifer (Dacrydium and Dacrycarpus), angiosperm (Nothofagus and Weinmannia) rain forest, Mount ...
Earthquake impacts in old-growth Nothofagus forests in New Zealand
(Opulus Press, 2001-06)
Six stands located on different land forms in mixed old-growth Nothofagus forests in the Matiri Valley (northwest of South Island, New Zealand) were sampled to examine the effects of two recent large earthquakes on tree ...
Small-scale species richness in forest canopy gaps: the role of niche limitation versus the size of the species pool
(Opulus Press, 1998-06)
The form of the relationship between local species richness and the number of species in the surrounding region can be used as a test between competing theories of community structure. For 32 canopy gaps in New Zealand ...
Temporal changes in height and diameter growth for two Nothofagus species in New Zealand
(Opulus Press, 1997-06)
We examined whether the growth dynamics of two species can explain their coexistence. In particular, we examined New Zealand forests dominated by Nothofagus fusca and N. menziesii to determine whether both species can reach ...
Tree species richness and turnover throughout New Zealand forests
(Opulus Press, 1999-12)
Patterns of mortality, recruitment, and forest turnover were investigated using permanent plot data from temperate forests in 14 localities throughout New Zealand. Tree mortality and recruitment rates were calculated from ...
