    The three most important primates of French Guiana are frugivorous species, but to different degrees. Ateles paniscus is almost exclusively frugivorous, Alouatta seniculus frugivorous‐folivorous, and Cehus apellu partially insectivorous; thus, the overall specific diet spectra arc well separated. During the season when fruit production is minimal, fruit intake by all species is also minimal. In , the Silvicultural research on the natural forest stands of French Guiana operation was initiated, and since then, the Paracou experimental site has been a favourite place for basic ecological research concerning the structure, dynamics, diversity and functioning of the lowland rainforest of coastal French Guiana. The site offers more than hectares of plots where trees are fully.

    The mammals of Paracou, French Guiana: a neotropical lowland rainforest fauna Part 2. Nonvolant species. Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History, , 3– Experiments were performed to investigate monthly variations in seed fate of Carapa procera (Meliaceae), a rodent-dispersed subcanopy tree species in French Guiana. A total of thread-marked seeds were placed on the ground in mature forest under 20 adult trees during different months (March, April and May ) of the species' fruiting season.

    Preliminary lists of obligate (Appendix I) and opportunistic (Appendix II) frugivores (fruit-eating animals) have been prepared based on a comparison of the bats known to occur at Paracou (Simmons & Voss, ) and Arataye (Voss & Emmons, ), French Guiana with information about bat dietary preferences in Gardner (). The red acouchi, Myoprocta acouchy, is a species of rodent in the acouchi genus, part of the family Dasyproctidae, from South is found in the Guyanan subregion of the Amazon biome, including Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana, and Brazil, east of the Rio Branco and mainly north of the Amazon, with a few records from south of the the past, some authors have applied the name M.

The Paracou test site is located in French Guiana (Location: 5°16′28″N, 52°55′25″W), which belongs to the Guiana Shield, north-eastern of the Amazon Basin.

More than 94% of French Guiana’s land area is covered with moist lowland terra firme rain forest that has a high number of tree species (– species per hectare) and. Table species classifications defined at the Paracou experimental site and at the Piste de Saint Elie research station, French Guiana.

It was established in for research on natural mechanisms of forest. Field stations are equipped with them, for example in Nouragues and Paracou in French Guiana: animal monitoring, continuous forest-atmosphere exchange measurements, automatic weather stations, satellite internet connection, etc.

[11]. This equipment does not only. The spatial distribution of two rain forest tree species, Carapa procera (Meliaceae) and Vouacapoua americana (Caesalpiniaceae) was analysed within and between plots of different sizes ( and 25 ha) at Paracou, French Guiana. The L(d) function was used to characterize spatial patterns, and the L ij (d) intertype to study independancy between young and adult trees.

Using five microsatellites we analysed seeds of 27 open pollinated families at the experimental site “Paracou” in French Guiana. We observed, compared to other tropical tree species, a high level of genetic diversity. We estimated parameters of the mating system and gene flow by using the mixed mating model and the TwoGener approach.
