Life after disturbance: changes in the spatial genetic structure of Jacaranda copaia after logging in French Guiana

Forest disturbance affects the within-population distribution of genetic diversity, but not its overall levels, in a tropical pioneer tree species. In particular, clumps of related saplings with impoverished diversity are found in canopy gaps but not under

Monitoring ectomycorrhizal fungi at large scales for science, forest management, fungal conservation and environmental policy

The ICP Forests network can be a platform for large-scale mycorrhizal studies. Mapping and monitoring of mycorrhizas have untapped potential to inform science, management, conservation and policy regarding distributions, diversity hotspots, dominance and rarity, and indicators of
