This book introduces the ecology of the high-altitude tropical cloud forests on Hainan Island in China. The findings are novel and reveal environmental characteristics, community features, diversity patterns, plant strategies, community assembly mechanisms, and diversity-ecosystem functions of tropical cloud forests in China. This book will bridge the gaps in our understanding of tropical forests and enrich the theory of tropical forest community ecology. Written by experts in the field, this book will serve as an invaluable reference for tropical forest ecology researchers.
