Spatial variability of lear area index in homogeneous forests relates to local variation in tree characteristics. The nutrients tend to be distributed patchily, and this encourages different species to evolve, capable of dealing with the infertile conditions in varied ways, or exploiting different patches of soil. Further, students’ nature connectedness score (1–5) on day 1 was positively correlated with their perceived power to improve environmental problems (Pearson correlation, r = 0.41, n = 111, p < 0.001), as well as their feelings towards nature (r = 0.22, n = 111, p = 0.023), but showed a negative correlation with their feelings towards environmental degradation (r = -0.22, n = 111, p = 0.022).

Ten of the thirty houses were then selected as focal properties, based on the diversity of cover types represented and the size of the core tree garden area, in which all plant stems were mapped. The leaves range from 1 to 2 inches, are broad and blunt at the tip, and have a shiny, deep green color with a lighter green on the underside of the leaf. This contrasts with Southeast Asia, where the dipterocarp-rich forests yield many more timber species, and are much more intensively logged (around 10–20 trees per hectare) and heavily damaged by logging.

Much of this is protected in the Wet Tropics of Queensland World Heritage Area. In many parts of Africa, seasonal forest has been degraded to savanna woodland which has a grassy floor and grows right up to the edge of the rain forest. Hostilities may last as long as a generation - although interspersed with periods of truce - or peter out in a single day. After all, many of these islands are separated from one another by hundreds of kilometres of seawater, so one might have expected evolution to have taken different directions due to their relative isolation from one another.

Mangrove forests are also found on the north coast of Brazil, between Maraca Island and the border with French Guiana, a muddy region with few sandy beaches caused by the marine current that carries the sediment further west. In Sri Lanka, tree gardens have been studied in the central hill region, an area that was the last refuge for the Kingdom of Kandy and which traded spices from these tree gardens with the Portuguese (De Silvas 1981).
