Changes in forest structure and composition after fire in tropical montane cloud forests near the Andean treeline

Abstract:

Background: In tropical montane cloud forests (TMCFs) fires can be a frequent source of disturbance near the treeline.

Aims: To identify how forest structure and tree species composition change in response to fire and to identify fire-tolerant species, and determine which traits or characteristics are associated with fire tolerance.

Methods: Shifts in forest structure and diversity were assessed on 15 paired plots in burnt and unburnt (control) forests, along a fire chronoseq...
