    Department of Biology, University of Missouri St Louis, St Louis, MO 63121, USA
    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 359:477-91. 2004
    ..Finally, a more complete understanding of tropical rainforest carbon cycling is needed for determining whether these ecosystems are carbon sinks or sources now, and how this status might change during the next century...

    D A Clark
    Department of Biology, University of Missouri, St Louis, MO 63121, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 100:5852-7. 2003
    ..As has been projected by recent process model studies, such a sensitivity of tropical forest productivity to on-going climate change would accelerate the rate of atmospheric CO(2) accumulation...

    David B Clark
    University of Missouri St Louis, St Louis, MO, USA
    Ecol Lett 11:163-72. 2008
    ..These data are a benchmark for understanding the structure and functional composition of TRF canopies at landscape scales, and also provide insights for improving ecosystem models and remote sensing validation...

    Stephen Porder
    Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305 USA
    Ecology 87:594-602. 2006
    ..The results from La Selva challenge the assumption that tropical Oxisols in general have low nutrient inputs from bedrock, and support the hypothesis that erosion can increase the supply of these nutrients in lower landscape positions...
