Type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Turrialba (Costa Rica) : CATIE , 2013Description: páginas 108-194 : 9 ilustraciones, 14 tablas ; 21.59 x 27.94 cm +.Online Resources: Texto completo (En) Summary: The link between plant characteristics and ecosystem processes is important for the sustainability of the agro ecosystems and has received too limited attention especially regarding the high diversity tropical lands continually threatened by land use changes from forest to agricultural systems. This research explores for the first time the relation between plnat functional traits, decomposition rates and nutrient releases for 37 Nicaraguan tree species with different capacities to naturally regenerate in agricultural lans such as anthropogenic pastures. A total of 17 plant traits related to four main trait variability dimensions like I) leaf, ii) stem iii) height and iv) reproductive spectrums were measured on adult trees (dbh≥10 cm).
