A comparison of 12 tree species of Amazonian caatinga using growth rates in gaps and understorey, and allometric relationships

The relative growth rate of saplings of 12 species from an oligotrophic lowland rainforest were measured in treefall gaps and understorey. Allometric relationships between the total leaf area (TLA) and height were dependent upon light conditions.
