Abstract: ABSTRACT: In tropical forests, the environmental heterogeneity can provide niche partitioning at local scales and determine the diversity and plant species distribution. Thus, this study aimed to investigate the variations of tree species structure and distribution in response to relief and soil profile features in a portion of the largest remnant of Brazilian Atlantic rain forest. All trees ≥ 5 cm diameter at breast height were recorded in two 0.99 ha plots.Topographic survey and a soil characterization were…
