    • ...The simulated time to equilibrium for broadleaf evergreen trees in the simulation with b 0( ∼25 yr) is smaller than that for tree PFTs in the Siberia and the Manitoba grid cell (∼40–50 yr) (consistent with the higher NPP of tropical forests) and is comparable to the 27-yr time scale achieved by the LPJ model for a tropical forest site (Sitch et al. 2003, their Figure 2). Kartawinata et al. (Kartawinata et al. 1981) reported that after 30 ...
    • ...Equilibrium times for simulations with b 1 and b 0.5, between 12 and 15 yr, are unrealistically lower than estimates from Kartawinata et al. (Kartawinata et al. 1981) and those based on the LPJ model (Sitch et al. 2003)...

    • ...This mortality reduces the number of tree species per surface area while increasing the light levels in the forest understorey (Kartawinata et al. 1981; Woods 1989; Cannon et al. 1998; Uuttera et al. 2000)...

    • ...Although 'selective logging' is applied, extracting about 20 trees per ha, more than 40 percent of the remaining trees get partly damaged (Kartawinata et al. 1981)...

    • ...km 2 in South-East Asia feature such heavy and destructive logging that most of the residual forest is damaged beyond recovery for decades (Kartawinata et al., 1981; Ewel and Conde, 1989)...

    • ...Disappearance of forest propagules following logging and shifting cultivation has been observed in many tropical areas [8, 16, 23, 24]; and where forest is converted to scrubland, natural vegetative succession back to forest is unlikely even with long fallow [19]...
