Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: plantation
Substrate: ground surface
MAT: 24.4
WMT: 26.9
CMT: 21.8
MAP: 2274.0
Habitat comments: "tropical moist and wet forest... Allspice agroforestry systems consisted of allspice that had been planted in pasture with other commercially valuable species such as coffee, cacao, and citrus between 3 to 5 years before the commencement of the study. Allspice had shorter, smaller trees than secondary forest, but similar understory structure"
