IAI-Data-CRN_012_Marchesini_ch_ad: Density of Chusquea culeou adult in 50 m. transect
Entry ID: IAIDIS788

Abstract: During 2001 a native forest in the South of Argentina experienced the
massive flowering and death of the bamboo Chusquea culeou, a dominant
understory species. We proposed to assess the impact of this event on:
a) the environmental factors and b) the population dynamics of forest
vegetation. We recorded air and soil temperature, relative air
humidity and light intensity under two conditions: death and green
bamboo. We also registered the survirvoship, growth and herbivory
rates on Nothofagus nervosa, a canopy dominant tree and Chusquea
culeou seedlings. We evaluated the density of Chusquea culeou adult in
transect of 50 m. We recorded the distance of each individual plant
along each transect.
