Site Description
The site is composed by a set of Atlantic Forest fragments and restoration sites scattered in an agricultural landscape in north of Parana state, south Brazil. The forest in this region is a seasonal semi-deciduous form of Atlantic Forest, which undergone strong conversion rates from 1940 to 1980 and presently has only 8% forest cover, distributed in a myriad of small fragments. Forest fragmentation, fertilizer and pesticide leakage from agricultural fields and urbanization are the main regional drivers of environmental change. In each sub-site (forest fragment or restoration site) we are sampling flora, fauna and ecosystem attributes (forest biomass, litter fall, litter decomposition etc). The site is maintained by Londrina State University
