 Standard error of the mean is between parentheses. Letters represent significant differences between groups at level p < 0.05. EVI: enhanced vegetation index derived from MODIS time series (Stellmes et al. 2013b). The table is based on a larger dataset than that used for community classification, which used a minimum DBH of 20 cm
