    CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Tracing the history of South-American neotropical savannas and seasonally dry forests .   Seasonally dry tropical forests are distributed across Latin America and the Caribbean and are highly threatened, with less than 10% of their original extent remaining in many countries. Using inventories covering species of woody plants, we show marked floristic turnover among inventories and regions, which may be higher than in other neotropical biomes, such as by:

    Tropical dry biomes are rapidly changing due to land transformation, the effects of rising atmospheric CO 2 on tree growth, and climate change more generally. While dry forests are already highly fragmented and diminished, the savanna biome contains the majority of the world’s remaining arable by: 9.

Only one chapter is devoted to Africa, the other large area where savannas and seasonally dry forests are to be found.

About this book This latest addition to the prestigious Systematics Association Special Volumes series is the first extensive compilation of the patterns of plant biodiversity in the species-rich savannas and seasonally dry forests of the neotropics. More often than not, when people think of a neotropical forest, what comes to mind is a rain forest, rather than a dry forest.

Just as typically, when they imagine a savanna, they visualize the African plains, rather than those dry woodlands and grasslands found in the Neotropics.

These same preconceptions can be found among scientists, as these neCited by: The Neotropics contain globally significant areas of seasonally dry forests and savannas.

Seasonally dry tropical forests are found in scattered areas, with the most species-rich in Mexico, but similar levels of diversity may be found elsewhere (e.g.

Peru, Bolivia). Levels of floristic similarity between areas are often low, and some areas (e.g. Brazilian caatingas, Peruvian inter-Andean valleys, Mexican Pacific Cited by: DOI link for Neotropical Savannas and Seasonally Dry Forests.

This is the first extensive compilation of the patterns of plant diversity in these neotropical ecosystems. It is a monumental work/5. Prolonged seasonal drought affects most of the tropics, including vast areas presently or recently dominated by 'dry forests'.

These forests have received scant attention, despite the fact that humans have used and changed them more than rain forests. This volume reviews the available information, often making contrasts with wetter forests. The world's dry forest heterogeneity of structure and 3/5(1).

This book is the result of a plant diversity symposium held at the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh, UK (the institutional home of the editors) in September of The aim of the conference was to focus on neotropical dry vegetation, to address the imbalance between the study of rain forests and seasonally dry ecosystems, and to publish data.

Seasonally dry tropical forests have been largely ignored in discussions of vegetation changes during the Quaternary.

We distinguish dry forests, which are essentially tree‐dominated ecosystems, from open savannas that have a xeromorphic fire‐tolerant, grass layer and grow on dystrophic, acid by:.

Seasonally Dry Tropical Forests seeks to address this shortcoming by bringing together a range of experts in diverse fields including biology, ecology, biogeography, and biogeochemistry, to review, synthesize, and explain the current state of our collective knowledge on the ecology and conservation of seasonally dry tropical forests.Neotropical seasonally dry forests are found from northwestern Mexico to northern Argentina and southwestern Brazil in separate areas of varying size (fig).
