“…Comparable results are corroborated in the literature (Flores et al 2014, Kusumoto et al 2015, D€ obert et al 2017. In fact, a recent study showed that, after 49 yr, the species composition of intensively managed tropical forest timber stands in Australia remained distinct (Hu et al 2018).…”

“…The recovery of forest structure after disturbance displays a widespread pattern of dynamic forest processes [49], and stem density is relatively high at intermediate disturbance times during succession [50]. Structure recovery is generally quite rapid, but species composition recovery is quite difficult and highly dependent on the pre-disturbance history [49,51]. Our study demonstrated that fallows from shifting cultivation existed at different stages of recovery, and species composition and diversity remained distinct for all tree sizes ( Table 1 and Figures 1-3), especially for adult trees in 40-year, 60-year, and old-growth communities.…”

“…Thus, early colonization of these abandoned forests by new species was hindered, resulting in lower species diversity across tree size class in the 40-year and 60-year recovery forests, especially for adult trees. Thirdly, some biotic factors, such as proximity to nearby populations [51] and seed dispersal from pioneer species, may play major roles in the early phases of succession which may increase the abundance of pioneer species [53]. Large disturbances that occurred many years ago may have also determined the tree species distribution with different life history strategies [54].…”

“…paper, low grade construction timber). From this perspective, our study suggests that there is high potential of sustainably managed tropical secondary forests with sufficient logging rotation periods to act as substantial carbon sinks as well as reservoirs for forest biodiversity Hu et al, 2018;.…”

“…In the same study site under the same Expt. 408, Hu et al (2018) found that selective logging, low-and medium-intensity silvicultural treatments did not alter the species composition of tropical forests greatly, and the species composition following high-intensity silvicultural treatments recovered partially within 46 years.…”
