S. Joseph Wright, Helene C. Muller-Landau, Osvaldo Calderón and Andrés Hernandéz. Year. Annual and spatial variation in seedfall and seedling recruitment in a Neotropical forest. Ecology VOL: pp-pp.

Appendix 2.  Annual number of seedling recruits for 32 species from Barro Colorado Island, Panama.  Seedling recruits were censused each year from 1995 through 2003 for 600 1.0-m2 plots (see Methods: Seed and recruit censuses).  The column headings refer to the year of the flowering event that produced the seedling recruits (explained in Wright et al. 1999).

*  The
eight species with numbers in the column headed 1993 and asterisks in the column headed 2002 have an extra one year lag between flowering and the first census in which seedlings are present.  For an example, see Methods: Relationships between seedfall and recruitment.
