Whereas many studies have addressed the effects of deforestation on biodiversity, few have focused on the recovery of diversity during reforestation. This study aimed at evaluating the recovery of, or chronosequential changes in, the biodiversity in the fallows (i.e., secondary vegetation or forests that form during the resting periods following harvest in shifting cultivation) of a tropical rainforest region in Borneo. We also aimed at determining the impacts of forest fragmentation and other land-use changes on biodiversity.
