FIELD SITE DATA
When this research began in 1995, our goal was to provide a general description of the southeast Pará landscape & the forest where mahogany occurs. This section describes climatic & physiographic gradients that provide physical context for flora & fauna in this region. Links to basic datasets are provided.
Annual rainfall & temperature patterns from 1995 at Marajoara and the sawmill community called Marajoara on state highway PA-150.
Annual-seasonal migrations of the belowground water table, or phreatic water, at Marajoara.
Gradients in soil texture, color, moisture retention, and nutrient availability across topographic gradients at Marajoara.
Inventory data contrasting forest composition and structure at high- and low-ground topographic positions, plus profiles of principal tree species at Marajoara.
