Overhead, bananas and sugar cane provide scattered shade. ..." Most fruit eaters need no such specializations, for fruits are generally easy to digest. Despite these attractions, only about 25 percent of the year's new leaf growth goes to leaf eaters, because rain forest trees have evolved a highly sophisticated set of defences.

Parks are most successful when they have the support of local people living in and around the protected area. On the basis of the neutral theory, which assigns a leading role to stochasticity, one would not expect to find much similarity in community structure over such a wide area and such a long span of time.

Archaeologists have shown that these oases of nutrient-rich soil were created by adding large amounts of organic matter for intensive cultivation. The economic consequences of alien plant invasions: examples of impacts and approaches to sustainable management in South Africa. Climatologists can use it to better understand the effects of urban forests on climates, and students and citizen scientists can use it to learn about the role trees play in the urban ecosystem.
