Abstract: Blackwater floodplain forests of the Rio Negro are susceptible to understory fires. Bird composition was distinct between burned and unburned floodplain forest but not between young (12-18 yr) and old burns (>25 yr), indicating low resilience after fire. Forest regeneration is slow, with open grassy areas persisting >80 yr. © 2012 The Author(s) Journal compilation © 2012 by The Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation.
