      During the dry season water availability in these forests is primarily limited to perennial rivers and waterholes. Such water sources form an essential part of these dry forests and are used by multiple species, including large mammals and birds, but little is known regarding how waterhole characteristics affect wildlife use.   Bunyavejchewin, S, Baker, PJ and Davies, SJ () Seasonally dry tropical forests in continental Southeast Asia: structure, composition, and dynamics.

    RESEARCH NEEDS FOR THE ECOLOGY OF NATURAL REGENERATION OF SEASONALLY DRY TROPICAL FORESTS IN SOUTHEAST ASIA K. A. Hardwick1, J. R. Healey1 and D. Blakesley2 ABSTRACT Widespread forest restoration on degraded lands is needed to meet local and. Forests account for 75% of the gross primary productivity of the Earth's biosphere, and contain 80% of the Earth's plant biomass. Forest ecosystems can be found in all regions capable of sustaining tree growth, at altitudes up to the tree line, except where natural fire frequency or other disturbance is too high, or where the environment has been altered by human activity.
