Nouragues is a tropical woodland examine station in French Guiana. It used to be proven in 1986 for study on average mechanisms of wooded area regeneration. seeing that then loads of study has been performed in this and comparable topics.
This ebook presents an outline of the most learn effects, and makes a speciality of plant groups, vertebrate groups and evolutionary ecology, frugivory and seed dispersal, and wooded area dynamics and recruitment.
The appendices supply (annoted) checklists of vegetation, birds, mammals, herpetofauna and fishes present in a similar area.

Vouchers were deposited at the Cayenne herbarium, with duplicates in Paris and, if needed, sent to specialists. Identifications of the vouchers were conducted by the late eighties; sofar 1520 trees have been named, most for them at the species level (1149) and half of the total (1339 out of 2674) at the generic level. A reinventory was carried out in 1995, aiming to collect data about dynamics (growth and mortality). 2 THE INSELBERG SITE The Nouragues area lies 7 km away from the 'Sauts Parare' plot.

In the centres of a selection ofthe patches in total 166 hemispherical photographs were taken. To analyse the relation between gap size and light availability we took hemispherical photographs at the centre of I 00 canopy gaps. All photographs were made at ca. I m height. 5 mm Fisheye lens. f Mitchell & Whitmore 1993), and the photosynthetically active photon flux density (PPFD, as a percentage of the PPFD above the canopy) was calculated using the program Hemiphot (Ter Steege 1993). To show light variability across a canopy gap we measured light levels along a 70m long transect through a recently formed canopy gap.
