Natural disturbances 'have contributed to the high biological diversity found in many tropical ecosystems (Restrepo & Gomez 1998). Such natural disturbances are thought to promote species diversity by preventing competitive exclusion and creating habitat heterogeneity, thereby allowing specialization and resource partitioning (Levey 1988). Much of the recent interest in tropical forest dynamics has centered on the relationship between naturally occurring disturbances and species diversity (Lawton & Putz 1988). 011e of the main . examples of natural disturbances that promote diversity is natural or man-made tree fall forest gaps.
