Supplementary Figure 1. Distribution of 21 permanent study plots in undisturbed forest in the central Amazon, about 80 km north of Manaus, Brazil. Gray areas are intact rainforest and white areas are a mosaic of secondary forest and cattle pastures. Three plots (3304.8, 3304.9, 2303.6) are located in the centers of large (110-115 ha), unlogged and unhunted forest fragments, which were isolated from nearby forest between 1983 and 1990. All plots are located ? 300 m from the nearest forest edge,
which is the furthest distance at which edge effects influencing forest dynamics and biomass have been detected. The fragment plots are located 350-450 m from the nearest forest edge.

including the three plots of A. Oliveira). Inter-plot distances ranged from 200 to 30200 m, with an
overall mean of 8600 m.
