Growth in tropical dry forests.

We use tree-rings to reconstruct the dynamics (age, growth rates, survival rates) of timber tree species in managed tropical dry forests. We aim to combine dendrochronology and matrix modelling for performing demographic estimates of the main timber tree species in a selectively logged forest (INPA, Bolivia). This novel information would allow increasing the knowledge of these threatened forests and improving their use and conservation.
