Although some aspects of forest function are reflected in climatic classifications,
others such as tightness of nutrient cycling are not. Because of the prevalence of
poor soils in many regions of the lowland tropics and the consequent frequent
occurrence of forests adapted to nutrient conservation, climatic classifications
alone are often an inadequate system on which to base forest management
plans. 3.2.2 Classification Based on Species 3.2.2.1 Classification at the
Community Level ...

Birds have many important roles in the ecology of all tropical forest communities:
they eat fruits and disperse seeds, pollinate the flowers they visit for nectar, and
prey upon insects, spiders, and small vertebrates living on the leaves, twigs, and
trunks of trees. Raptors are major predators of many larger forest animals,
including frogs, reptiles, rats, squirrels, other birds, and even primates. Birds have
received more attention from biologists than any other animal group, except
perhaps the ...

land bridge islands and forest fragments lose species after isolation (Diamond

1980; Heaney 1984; Case and Cody 1987). Large-bodied vertebrates, especially
those high on the trophic ladder, are particularly vulnerable to habitat contraction
