This is the first dynamic study of a vanishing type of dry forest, which grows on base-rich soils originating from the basalt bedrock of western Minas Gerais State. The species were classified into three regeneration guilds — pioneer, light-demanding and shade-tolerant — on the basis of others studies and personal observation.

The species were classified into three regeneration guilds — pioneer, light-demanding and shade-tolerant — on the basis of others studies and personal observation. There was a decrease of However, the basal area had an increase of 1.
Size class distributions in and were significantly different. Although stand composition showed little change, a few species showed significant imbalance between recruitment and mortality. The studied fragment had mortality 2. The main compositional changes were the increase of shade-tolerant trees and decline of pioneer species. The changes in composition and structure over the survey period may reflect the recovery of the forest after 4 yr of conservation. This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access.

None of the species is endemic to the formation and only four to the region; most are associated generally with the margins of rivers, lakes, and streams, often on rocky or sandy substrates.
