Article
Given the importance of understanding endemic species distribution for conservation strategies and the status of the Atlantic Forest as a conservation hotspot, we carried out a study to evaluate where are located the areas of endemism (AoE) at Bahia Coastal Forests (BCF), a threatened and species rich area of this hotspot. To achieve this aim, we r...

In this study we analyzed climatic data, a water balance model, and data on tree deciduousness aiming to determine the physiognomy of a forest in São João de Petrópolis, central Espírito Santo, Brazil. We hypothesized that the studied forest stand would be a remnant of the deciduous forests that were reported by naturalists in both centuries XIX an...

Epiphytes are hyper‐diverse and one of the frequently undervalued life forms in plant surveys and biodiversity inventories. Epiphytes of the Atlantic Forest, one of the most endangered ecosystems in the world, have high endemism and radiated recently in the Pliocene. We aimed to (1) compile an extensive Atlantic Forest data set on vascular, non‐vas...

This study is based on the hypothesis that unmanaged plantations of commercial species do not prevent understory colonization by native species. The research aimed to describe the floristic composition and structure of native arboreal species in the understory of a Corymbia citriodora stand. To this end, 112 plots (10 × 10 m; 1.12 ha) were installe...

The forest along the coast of Bahia state, in northeastern Brazil, has been acknowledged as an area of endemism for several groups of organisms. The first study concerning endemic angiosperm species in this region, through which 395 taxa were registered, was conducted 15 years ago. However, this number is probably underrated. In this article, we pr...

Knowledge about the biogeographic affinities of the world’s tropical forests helps to better understand regional differences in forest structure, diversity, composition, and dynamics. Such understanding will enable anticipation of region-specific responses to global environmental change. Modern phylogenies, in combination with broad coverage of spe...

Resumo O estado do Espírito Santo apresenta grande variedade de ecossistemas num território relativamente pequeno. A exuberância de suas florestas vem despertando o interesse de muitos naturalistas e viajantes desde o século XIX, os quais deixaram registros valiosos dos primeiros anos da ocupação das "Areas Prohibidas" a leste de Minas Gerais. O cu...

This study presents a checklist of lycophytes and ferns from secondary semideciduous forests in São João de Petrópolis, Santa Teresa, Espírito Santo, Brazil. We recorded 37 species (four lycophytes and 33 ferns) belonging to nine families and 17 genera. Selaginella is the only genus representing lycophytes whereas Adiantum, Anemia and Asplenium are...

Resumo Apresentamos uma revisão das visões controversas acerca da classificação fisionômica da Floresta de Linhares, aqui definida como a floresta sobre tabuleiros costeiros que ocorre entre os rios Doce e Barra Seca, no norte do Espírito Santo. Compilamos informações sobre o clima estacional dessa região e analisamos a inter-relação das variações...

Supplementary Information for 'Neves D.M. et al. (2017) Dissecting a biodiversity hotspot: The importance of environmentally marginal habitats in the Atlantic Forest Domain of South America. Diversity and Distributions 23, DOI10.1111/ddi.12581'
Article
Full-text available
Aim: We aimed to assess the contribution of marginal habitats to the tree species richness of the Mata Atlântica (Atlantic Forest) biodiversity hotspot. In addition, we aimed to determine which environmental factors drive the occurrence and distribution of these marginal habitats. Location: The whole extension of the South American Atlantic Forest...
Article
Aim: Using a comprehensive floristic database (2616 species, 36,004 occurrence records from 128 unique localities), we model species turnover along the central region of the Atlantic Forest hotspot to (1) test whether local rivers, particularly the Rio Doce, are associated with marked biogeographical breaks, and (2) investigate how regional composi...

Full-text available
We submitted tree species occurrence and geoclimatic data from 59 sites in a river basin in the Atlantic Forest of southeastern Brazil to ordination, ANOVA, and cluster analyses with the goals of investigating the causes of phytogeographic patterns and determining whether the six recognized subregions represent distinct floristic units. We found th...

The high species richness of tropical forests has long been recognized, yet there remains substantial uncertainty regarding the actual number of tropical tree species. Using a pantropical tree inventory database from closed canopy forests, consisting of 657,630 trees belonging to 11,371 species, we use a fitted value of Fisher’s alpha and an approx...

Background: Understanding floristic and geographic patterns in one of the most biodiverse regions in the world – the Atlantic forest of eastern Bahia, Brazil – can identify the drivers of diversity in tropical forests and provide useful information for biological conservation. Aims: To understand the role of both climate and geographical location o...

IThe goal of this study was to test the preference of Dodonaea viscosa (L.) Jacq. by disturbed areas of restinga in southern coast of the Espírito Santo as well as if higher disturbance levels increase its abundance. Populations of this species were analyzed in three sections of shrubby vegetation with different histories of man-made disturbance in...

The tree changes of 1.02ha of montane forest at the Santa Lúcia Biological Station, southeastern Brazil, were analyzed using two surveys separated by an interval of 11years with the aim of confirming the patterns of stability of structure and diversity over time. In the original survey all trees with diameter at breast height ≥6.4cm were sampled. I...

This study aimed to describe the floristic composition and the structure, indicate the successional stage, and provide proposals for conservation and management of a secondary urban forest in Vitória Island, Espírito Santo state, which grew after about 400 years of man-made disturbances. In a 0.5 ha plot all tree and shrub individuals with dbh...

The tropical rain forest is well-known for its megadiversity and some important ecological services, especially on climate regulation. This forest type occurs in all four major tropical zones (America, Africa, Indo-Malaya and Australia) and covers about seven percent of the Earth’s forest area. Floristic composition varies largely within and amo...

Project
GENERAL GOAL: To know the diversity species of vascular plants in the Central Atlantic Forest. SPECIFIC GOALS: 1. Review and update plant specimens collected in the vegetations covered by the Project; 2. Generate a list of species; 3. Know the conservation status of the species; and 4. Generate illustrated guides to plant diversity.
