The Role of Seed Banks in Vegetation Dynamics and Restoration of Dry Tropical Ecosystems


This paper reviews studies on seed banks in tropical dry forests, comparing them with wet tropical and subtropical vegetation.

Research Goals & Methods

Seed banks in dry tropical forests tend to be low and they are density dependant on moisture levels of the area in question. Subtropical seed banks had similar values to dry tropical forests. Majority of the seeds are from pioneer forests.
