Resumen en inglés

Old-growth tropical forests harbor an immense diversity of tree species but are rapidly being cleared, while secondary forests that regrow on abandoned agricultural lands increase in extent. We assess how tree species richness and composition recover during secondary succession across gradients in environmental conditions and anthropogenic disturbance in an unprecedented multisite analysis for the Neotropics. Secondary forests recover remarkably fast in species richness but slowly in species composition. Secondary forests take a median time of five decades to recover the species richness of old-growth forest (80% recovery after 20 years) based on rarefaction analysis. Full recovery of species composition takes centuries (only 34% recovery after 20 years). A dual strategy that maintains both old-growth forests and species-rich secondary forests is therefore crucial for biodiversity conservation in human-modified tropical landscapes.

Resumen en inglés

Tropical forests are converted at an alarming rate for agricultural use and pastureland, but also regrow naturally through secondary succession. For successful forest restoration, it is essential to understand the mechanisms of secondary succession. These mechanisms may vary across forest types, but analyses across broad spatial scales are lacking. Here, we analyse forest recovery using 1,403 plots that differ in age since agricultural abandonment from 50 sites across the Neotropics. We analyse changes in community composition using species-specific stem wood density (WD), which is a key trait for plant growth, survival and forest carbon storage. In wet forest, succession proceeds from low towards high community WD (acquisitive towards conservative trait values), in line with standard successional theory. However, in dry forest, succession proceeds from high towards low community WD (conservative towards acquisitive trait values), probably because high WD reflects drought tolerance in harsh early successional environments. Dry season intensity drives WD recovery by influencing the start and trajectory of succession, resulting in convergence of the community WD over time as vegetation cover builds up. These ecological insights can be used to improve species selection for reforestation. Reforestation species selected to establish a first protective canopy layer should, among other criteria, ideally have a similar WD to the early successional communities that dominate under the prevailing macroclimatic conditions.

Resumen en inglés

The nutrient demands of regrowing tropical forests are partly satisfied by nitrogen-fixing legume trees, but our understanding of the abundance of those species is biased towards wet tropical regions. Here we show how the abundance of Leguminosae is affected by both recovery from disturbance and large-scale rainfall gradients through a synthesis of forest inventory plots from a network of 42 Neotropical forest chronosequences. During the first three decades of natural forest regeneration, legume basal area is twice as high in dry compared with wet secondary forests. The tremendous ecological success of legumes in recently disturbed, water-limited forests is likely to be related to both their reduced leaflet size and ability to fix N2, which together enhance legume drought tolerance and water-use efficiency. Earth system models should incorporate these large-scale successional and climatic patterns of legume dominance to provide more accurate estimates of the maximum potential for natural nitrogen fixation across tropical forests.

Land-use change occurs nowhere more rapidly than in the tropics, where the imbalance between deforestation and forest regrowth has large consequences for the global carbon cycle1. However, considerable uncertainty remains about the rate of biomass recovery in secondary forests, and how these rates are influenced by climate, landscape, and prior land use2–4. Here we analyse aboveground biomass recovery during secondary succession in 45 forest sites and about 1,500 forest plots covering the major environmental gradients in the Neotropics. The studied secondary forests are highly productive and resilient. Aboveground biomass recovery after 20 years was on average 122 megagrams per hectare (Mg ha−¹), corresponding to a net carbon uptake of 3.05 Mg C ha−¹ yr−¹, 11 times the uptake rate of old-growth forests. Aboveground biomass stocks took a median time of 66 years to recover to 90% of old-growth values. Aboveground biomass recovery after 20 years varied 11.3-fold (from 20 to 225 Mg ha−¹) across sites, and this recovery increased with water availability (higher local rainfall and lower climatic water deficit). We present a biomass recovery map of Latin America, which illustrates geographical and climatic variation in carbon sequestration potential during forest regrowth. The map will support policies to minimize forest loss in areas where biomass resilience is naturally low (such as seasonally dry forest regions) and promote forest regeneration and restoration in humid tropical lowland areas with high biomass resilience.

Resumen en inglés

Regrowth of tropical secondary forests following complete or nearly complete removal of forest vegetation actively stores carbon in aboveground biomass, partially counterbalancing carbon emissions from deforestation, forest degradation, burning of fossil fuels, and other anthropogenic sources. We estimate the age and spatial extent of lowland second-growth forests in the Latin American tropics and model their potential aboveground carbon accumulation over four decades. Our model shows that, in 2008, second-growth forests (1 to 60 years old) covered 2.4 million km² of land (28.1%of the total study area).Over 40 years, these lands can potentially accumulate a total aboveground carbon stock of 8.48 Pg C (petagrams of carbon) in aboveground biomass via low-cost natural regeneration or assisted regeneration, corresponding to a total CO2 sequestration of 31.09 Pg CO2. This total is equivalent to carbon emissions from fossil fuel use and industrial processes in all of Latin America and the Caribbean from1993 to 2014. Ten countries account for 95% of this carbon storage potential, led by Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela. We model future land-use scenarios to guide national carbon mitigation policies. Permitting natural regeneration on 40% of lowland pastures potentially stores an additional 2.0 Pg C over 40 years. Our study provides information and maps to guide national-level forest-based carbon mitigation plans on the basis of estimated rates of natural regeneration and pasture abandonment. Coupled with avoided deforestation and sustainable forestmanagement, natural regeneration of second-growth forests provides a low-costmechanism that yields a high carbon sequestration potential with multiple benefits for biodiversity and ecosystem services.

Resumen en inglés

Our main motivation for this book is to illustrate the potential for hyperspectral remote sensing to provide tools and information to infer and assess ecosystem characteristics at various spatial and temporal scales in the tropics and subtropics. The greater sensitivity and finer spectral resolution provided by these data offer unprecedented opportunities to study in detail even the most remote and inaccessible areas. These data also provide a means for retrospective or ongoing assessments. Examples from the chapters cover a range of ecosystem types, including mangroves, wooded savannas, rain forests, and dry forests, thus providing a nearly global perspective with study sites in Central and South America, Africa, Australia, and Hawaii. In the broad field of remote sensing from the Earth and planetary sciences, hyperspectral sensors and data are a relatively new and untapped data source. Most frequently they have been applied in other environments for forestry, agricultural, mineral exploration, and geologic applications; in the tropics, however, they are still under-used. The diversity of tropical and subtropicalecosystems, while providing a complex and unique set of challenges to the use of hyperspectral data, also offers an ideal environment to develop, test, and apply new techniques. It is precisely the complex and dynamic nature of these ecosystems that makes them such interesting and exciting areas for research with hyperspectral data.

One of the most unique features of this book is the focus on the application of hyperspectral technology specifically addressing tropical and subtropical environments with real-world examples and actual data. The authors also integrate a range of analysis techniques, including hyperspectral reflectance indices, spectral mixture analysis, patternclassification, band selection, partial least squares, linear discriminant analysis, and radiative transfer models. The chapters present a comprehensive review of the current status and most innovative achievements of hyperspectral remote sensing in tropical and subtropical environments; over 500 separate studies are cited. And, as illustrated by the diverse backgrounds of the contributors, the most successful use of hyperspectral data in tropical or subtropical regions integrates a multidisciplinary approach spanning a wide range of expertise. Several detailed volumes exist exploring the fundamentals of remote sensing, spectrometry, and image analysis in detail. Therefore, the purpose of this book is not to provide a tutorial in remote sensing; rather, its aim is to provide an illustration of the potential applications and analysis techniques that can be used, addressing the unique challenge of working in the tropics. Nevertheless, background information on hyperspectral remote sensing and the spectral characteristics of vegetation is provided in chapters 1, 2, 3, and 12. This book is structured as a set of 13 contributed chapters addressing techniques and applications of hyperspectral remote sensing for tropical and subtropical forests with field spectrometry, airborne spectrometry and imagery, and satellite imagery.

Resumen en español

The definition of mitigation policies and implementation projects in developing countries must be based on solid scientific knowledge foundations. This knowledge basis must not only provide information on the response of physical systems, but must consider, besides, the social forces that induce the response of natural systems. In the present article, the role played by science and technology in the definition of abatement policies is analyzed bye means of a case-study in the Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui area, in Costa Pica. Satellite information and geographical information systems are combined in order to understand the forces generating a change in the use of land in this area, as well in the building of a data-base which may permit the definition of long-term policies. It is concluded in this article that the success of any policy or program will only be achieved if these ale included within a referential framework which is related to a strategy for a country's coherent and sustainable development.
