Appendix B. Figures describing survival and growth of tropical tree seedlings.

FIG. B1. Summary of survival over the 54-month census period. Data points are the mean survival rates (± SE) of six seedlings transplanted into each of six replicate sites per microhabitat. Microhabitats included gap (open symbols) and understory (closed symbols) sites within four soil types (see legend for symbols). |

FIG. B2. Summary of height change over the 54-month census period. Data points are the mean height (± SE) of all seedlings surviving to the census period within six replicate sites per microhabitat. Microhabitats included gap (open symbols) and understory (closed symbols) sites within four soil types (see legend for symbols). Note that the scale of the y-axis differs among species. |
