altitude 1000 to 1500 m
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: secondary forest
Protection: national/state park

MAP: 1697.0
Habitat comments: "medium-altitude tropical rain forest" comprised of "moist evergreen forests, woodland thickets, swamps, grasslands, colonising shrubs and regenerating forests"
logged completely in the 1970s, covered with "banana plantations, elephant grass-dominated areas and grasslands with Combretum spp." by the 1990s, and replanted with native vegetation between 11 and 16 years before the study; classed as secondary forest because the plots are consistently called "restoration forests"
