“Floristic evidence for alternative biome states in tropical Africa” published in PNAS!

Our new paper on “Floristic evidence for alternative biome states in tropical Africa” is now published in PNAS!

Using tree species lists from 753 sites in forest and savanna, and paleo-ecological data from central Africa, we provided evidence that forest and savanna represent alternative biome states in floristic composition.

Adeline Fayolle and I both analyzed the data and wrote the paper. But this was a team effort, and we thank all of our co-authors for the data, ideas and feedback.
