Species composition in fragmented forests: Conservation implications of changing forest area (2001)
Journal Article
Curran, P. J., Hill, J. L., & Hill, J. (2001). Species composition in fragmented forests: Conservation implications of changing forest area. Applied Geography, 21(2), 157-174. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0143-6228%2801%2900002-9

An important aspect of forest fragmentation is the ensuing change in forest area and the impact this has on species numbers and composition. Quantifying this is an important step in prioritizing forest fragments for biodiversity conservation. Species...

Why are tropical rain forests so species rich? Classifying, reviewing and evaluating theories (2001)
Journal Article
Hill, R. A., Hill, J. L., Hill, J., & Hill, R. (2001). Why are tropical rain forests so species rich? Classifying, reviewing and evaluating theories. Progress in Physical Geography, 25(3), 326-354. https://doi.org/10.1177/030913330102500302

Two classifications are presented that organize the major processes and theories addressing the high species diversity of tropical rain forests. The first typology organizes environmental and biological processes within a spatio-temporal hierarchy, w... Read More about Why are tropical rain forests so species rich?
