Abstract: To date, studies of the carbon and nutrient cycling in tropical montane forests have been restricted to a few, mostly neotropical, sites. This thesis investigated the carbon and nutrient cycling of early (ES) and late (LS) successional forest stands in Nyungwe forest, one of Africa’s largest remaining tropical montane forests. The stocks and fluxes of carbon and nutrients, as well as the factors controlling these, were studied in 15 new forest plots established within this PhD project. Paper I... more
