Little is known regarding the long-term stability or instability of Amazonian plant communities. We assessed whether the most abundant species, hyperdominants, may have risen to prominence at the Pleistocene-Holocene transition, following subsequent changes in moisture regimes, or as a result of human activity later in the Holocene.

Jose Luis Marcelo Pena, Kyle Dexter, Reynaldo Linares-Palomino, and Toby Pennington contributed 6 new lowland Amazon plots from the Andean forelands in Peru. With these new plots important gaps in a very species rich area have been filled in.
We welcome our four new members.

Regrowing secondary tropical forests rapidly sequester carbon. An international team of forest researchers led by researchers from Wageningen University measured an eleven times higher carbon uptake compared with old-growth forests. In this week Nature they elaborate their findings.
Some of our ATDN colleagues contributed to this study.
Gerardo Aymard contributed plot information for an additional 1-ha plot in Amazonas, Venezuela.
The total nr of plots now stand at 1919, 1671 of which with composition.
