IAI-Data-CRN_012_Marches_Ch_Biomas: Impact of flowering and death of the bamboo Chusquea culeou
Entry ID: IAIDIS774

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: During 2001 a native forest in the South of Argentina experienced the
massive flowering and death of the bamboo Chusquea culeou, a dominant
understory species. We proposed to assess the impact of this event on:
a) the environmental factors and b) the population dynamics of forest
vegetation. We recorded air and soil temperature, relative air
humidity and light intensity under two conditions: death and green
bamboo. We also registered the survirvoship, growth and herbivory
rates on Nothofagus nervosa, a canopy dominant tree and Chusquea
culeou seedlings. The aboveground biomass of adults of Chusquea culeou
was determined on plots of 1.5 m2, all plant of Chusquea in the plot
were harvested and weighed. Subsamples (10%) were used to determined
fresh to drymass ratio.
