Table 1 Disturbance treatments (T1, T2, T3) implemented on the Paracou plots in 1986-1987

T1 DBH ≥ 50 cm, mean of 10 trees ·ha−1 - - [12−33%]
T2 DBH ≥ 50 cm, mean of 10 trees ·ha−1 - DBH ≥ 40cm, all non-valuable species, mean of 30 trees ·ha−1 [33−56%]

  1. The percentage of Aboveground Carbon Stock loss (% ACS loss) is defined as the difference between the pre-disturbance ACS and its minimum value reached during the 4 years after the disturbance treatments
