In any discussion of biological diversity, tropical forests must occupy center y defined, these forests are home to at least two-thirds of the world’s organisms, a number that amounts to no fewer than 3 million species, and could be 10 or more times greater than that amount.

    The mixed forest, having the highest level of biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, possesses several major properties of tropical rain forest. These findings may have important implications for the restoration of many severely degraded or lost tropical forest by:

Introduction. Tropical forests house approximately two thirds of the planet's terrestrial biodiversity [] and provide many ecosystem services (ES) that are essential to human well-being [1–3], such as CO 2 fixation [4,5], water supply and flood control [], soil maintenance and ecotourism [2,7].However, tropical forests are experiencing historically high levels of Cited by: 3.

Based on the work of Chiang Mai University's Forest Restoration Research Unit (FORRU-CMU) sincethis book shows how the framework species method of forest restoration has been successfully adapted to re-establish natural forest ecosystems in northern Thailand. Succession is an important guiding principle in the community approach to ecological restoration [ 40 ].

The restoring forest is a dynamic ecosystem, with changing species composition and forest structure, but interventions and management steer the forest towards a desired climax or pre-disturbance community structure. We used a global data set on forest restoration (21) to assess the most successful approach (natural regeneration versus active restoration) for restoring biodiversity (plants, invertebrates, birds, mammals, and herpetofauna) and vegetation structure (cover, density, biomass, height, and litter) in tropical by: of forest harvesting and fire impacts on the forest ecosystems, (2).

To reverse the effects of deforestation, tropical areas have expanded restoration efforts in recent years.

As ecological restoration positively affects the structure and function of degraded ecosystems, understanding to what extent restoration recovers ecosystem services (ES) is an important step in directing large-scale restoration actions.

As a forest ecosystem recovers, trees, soil, leaf litter, and other vegetation absorb and hold carbon. Forest restoration is a complex task, complicated by diverse ecological and social conditions, that challenges our understanding of forest ecosystems.

The term restoration is used indiscriminately and it is difficult to define in a way that compasses all situations found in Cited by: Regreening the Bare Hills: Tropical Forest Restoration in the Asia-Pacific Region (World Forests Book 8) - Kindle edition by Lamb, David.
