Natural disturbances such as treefalls are a major component of
tropical forest dynamics. These omnipresent treefall gaps are
crucial for forest regeneration and promote plant diversity.
However the effects of treefalls on mammals are not well
understood. This book provides novel insights into the population
dynamics, community structure, and species richness of terrestrial
and arboreal small mammals in treefall gaps and undisturbed forests
within the Amazonas. The discovery of a reciprocal source-sink
dynamics and the underlying mechanisms of higher mammalian species
diversity in gaps contributes to a better understanding of the role
of natural disturbances. This book will be especial useful for
biology students and professionals interested in tropical ecology
and new strategies for conservation and forest management.
