This report focuses on the humid tropics, a biogeographical area within the tropical zone that contains most of its population and biologically rich natural resources.
The editors write: “This book is a must-have for anyone interested in the study, conservation, management, or restoration of tropical montane cloud forests. It represents the state of the art with respect to our knowledge of cloud forest occurrence and status, as well as the biological and hydrological value of the unique forests.”.

In this article, we address the need for a more long-term perspective on the effects of climate change on tropical montane cloud forests (TMCF) in order to Cited by: Deforestation Guatemala, like many developing countries in the tropics, continues to destroy pristine, old growth forests in exchange for opening up more land for cattle and agriculture.
With an exploding population, high rates of poverty, lack of access to secondary education, and antiquated agricultural practices, Guatemala is facing all of the conditions for a “perfect [ ]. Cloud forests cover only a small area of the Wet Tropics but contribute a disproportionally large amount of water.
Behaving like giant sponges, they capture large volumes of water, but then release this water slowly throughout the year. For this reason, cloud forests are believed to be of great importance both in feeding stream sys. A cloud forest, also called a water forest, is a generally tropical or subtropical, evergreen, montane, moist forest characterized by a persistent, frequent or seasonal low-level clo ud cover, usually at the canopy level, formally described in the International Cloud Atlas () as forests often exhibit an abundance of mosses covering the ground and.

Biotic Interactions in the Tropics - edited by David Burslem September the giant lianas that wend through the canopy and the epiphyte-laden branches of cloud forests are striking examples.

Humid tropical forests have extraordinary biological diversity A. Because of the very fertile tropical soils B. Because rainfall dissolves soil nutrients and makes them available to plants C. Because water is not a limiting factor D. Despite a complete absence of nutrients in the environment E.
Despite the poor, weathered soils. In southern India, the Shola cloud forests are persistently dominated by thick moisture that cover the landscape like a shroud. While most cloud forests exist above 6, feet of altitude, the Sholas are only at feet, which means the region is warmer than other cloud forests, and the humidity is that much more intense.
