Species composition, community and population dynamics of two gallery forests from the Brazilian Cerrado domain.
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND:To understand the impacts of global changes on future community compositions, knowledge of community dynamics is of crucial importance. To improve our knowledge of community composition, biomass stock and maintenance of gallery forests in the Brazilian Cerrado, we provide two datasets from the 0.5 ha Corrego Fazendinha Gallery Forest Dynamics Plot and the Corrego Fundo Gallery Forest Dynamics Plot situated in the Bom Despacho region, Minas Gerais, Southeastern Brazil. NEW INFORMATION:We report diameter at breast height, basal area and height measurements of 3417 trees and treelets identified during three censuses in both areas.
