Hyperdominance in Amazonian forest carbon cycling

Hyperdominance in Amazonian forest carbon cycling

Samenvatting

While Amazonian forests are extraordinarily diverse, the abundance of trees is skewed strongly towards relatively few ‘hyperdominant’species. In addition to their diversity, Amazonian trees are a key component of the global carbon cycle, assimilating and storing morecarbon than any other ecosystem on Earth. Here we ask, using a unique data set of 530 forest plots, if the functions of storing andproducing woody carbon are concentrated in a small number of tree species, whether the most abundant species also dominate carboncycling, and whether dominant species are characterized by specific functional traits.
