Dynamics of the dense moist evergreen forests. Long term monitoring of an experimental station in Kodagu (Karnataka, India)

Abstract : This working paper reviews the various research activities undertaken in a permanent experimental field station near Uppangala village at the foot of the western slope of the Western Ghats. Three forest compartments, all situated in a lowelevation moist evergreen dense forest type dominated by dipterocarps, are being monitored since the mid-80s and early 90s. Different types of research projects are being carried out in these compartments on: the impact of selective logging on forest composition, structure and dynamics; the forest structure and diversity and their local variation in relation to topography and silvigenesis; tree architecture and growth; phenology and litterfall; relationships between forest composition and pollen rain; impact of human activities on the vegetation around the village. This station thus provides a common field for new methodological developments and for various ecological and socio-ecological studies.
