Site Type:  Field Site

Description:  This area of slash–and–burn agriculture located about 150 km east of Belém shares many characteristics in common with the Igarapé–Açu site, including the soils and climate. It has undergone eight to ten cycles of slash–and–burn and, therefore, provides an excellent opportunity to test the effects of this long–term land use on biogeochemical cycles. This site also has a 200 ha remnant of upland primary forest that has been used for comparison to the secondary forest and agricultural sites. This area was the site of intensive ground truthing for a remote sensing study of chronosequences that included 5–, 10–, 20– and 40–year–old secondary forests (Vieira et al., 1996).
