On the growth performance of two competing species in an Andean pasture of southern Ecuador - monitoring and simulations

The megadiverse tropical mountain forests in the southeastern Andes of Ecuador, including their biodiversity and ecosystem services, are severely threatened due to climate warming and the clearing of forests to produce pasture land. The common local practice of recurrent burning for pasture rejuvena...
