The effects of logging on the regeneration and nutrient budget of Araucaria cunninghamii dominated tropical rainforest in Papua New Guinea


, : The effects of logging on the regeneration and nutrient budget of Araucaria cunninghamii dominated tropical rainforest in Papua New Guinea. Malaysian Forester 41(4): 303-318

Inventories were made in a 1-ha plot of lower montane rainforest near Bulolo, Papua New Guinea, before and after selective logging in Feb. 1976. At 4 months after logging, grass (Paspalum dilatatum) and young secondary species were common; at 18 months Trema orientalis formed dense thickets and the growth rate of the surviving A. cunninghamii decreased significantly. Soil N and organic CC-P contents decreased after logging, but had recovered by 1977; Na and K recovered more slowly.
