The El Verde Research Area is in vegetation and on topography typical of the tabonuco (Dacry-odes excelsa Vahl.) forest zone, below m a.s.l. (Brown et al. ; Lugo and Scatena )inan. The cacao tree (Theobroma cacao) is a small-sized understory tree that thrives in the shade of heavier canopies and grows to a mature height of about 50 feet. Cacao tree is a native of the American tropical rain forest and its natural habitat is the Amazon basin riverbanks. The tree is tolerant of heavy shade and needs moisture to grow optimally.

The Puerto Rican moist forests are a tropical moist broadleaf forest ecoregion in Puerto cover an area of 7, km 2 (2, sq mi).

Puerto rico is full of predators, most of the predators are birds because puerto rico is an island. usually with islands only birds can reach them.

unless a species is a really good swimmer they would have to be human introduced. the culture of Puerto Rico is colorful and diverse. The names of many towns and villages, foods, objects and utensils,in Puerto rico all come from the Taino.

Tree growth rates in our study decreased from shade intolerant and canopy emergent species through shade tolerant and middle and low story late successional species, as others results in literature (Francis and Lowe, ; Kariukiet al., ), supporting theCited by: 3.

Tree Growth in a Moist Tropical Forest of Puerto Rico. Research Paper ITF United States Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Institute of Tropical Forestry, Río Cited by: The Puerto Rican dry forests are a tropical dry forest ecoregion located in southwestern and eastern Puerto Rico and on the offshore islands.

They cover an area of 1, km 2 ( sq mi). These forests grow in areas receiving less than 1, mm (39 in) of rain annually. Many of the trees are deciduous, losing their leaves during the dry season which normally lasts from Area: 1, km² ( sq mi).

Types of tropical forest. Tropical forests are often thought of as evergreen rainforests and moist forests, however in reality only up to 60% of tropical forest is rainforest (depending on how this is defined - see maps).

The remaining tropical forests are a diversity of many different forest types including: seasonally-dry tropical forest, mangroves, tropical freshwater swamp forests (or. Diameter at breast height, stem density and functional group were the most important predictors of tree growth in Puerto Rican secondary forest.

Site factors such as soil and topography failed to predict diameter growth. Keywords: Caribbean forests. Tropical moist forest recovery in abandoned tropic al pasture in Puerto Rico. Forest Ecology and Management, Growth and photosynthesis of tropical tree : Karen Holl.

Tropical dry forests are located along the south-central and southwestern coast of Puerto Rico and on adjacent islands such as Mona, Vieques, Culebra, Desecheo, Caja de Muertos, and portions of each of the larger U.S. Virgin Islands (see Little & WadsworthDansereauEwell & Whitmore Weaver, Peter L.: Tree growth in a moist tropical forest of Puerto Rico / (Rio Piedras, P.R.: Dept.

Tropical and subtropical moist broadleaf forests Generally found in large, discontinuous patches centered on the equatorial belt and between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, Tropical and Subtropical Moist Forests (TSMF) are characterized by low variability in annual temperature and high levels of rainfall (> centimeter annually).

The astounding richness and biodiversity of tropical forests is rapidly dwindling. This has severely altered the vital biogeochemical cycles of carbon, phosphorus, nitrogen etc.

and has led to the change in global climate and pristine natural ecosystems. In this elegant book, we have defined "Tropical Forests" broadly, into five different themes: (1) tropical forest structure, synergy.

Puerto Rico is neither a sleepy little Caribbean Island, nor is it a lush tropical paradise, as is sometimes depicted in tourism advertisements. There are places in Puerto Rico where both can be found, but, in fact, Puerto Rico today is the com-mercial engine of the Caribbean, and in many ways it has most of the contem-Cited by: The forests of Puerto Rico range from 1 to 30 m-tall, have smooth canopies when they mature (canopies are ragged after a hurricane), are characterized by high dominance of tree species, and contain about 60 tree species per hectare.
