             abstract = "We tested if structural changes in the canopy of terra firme 
                         forests in the Central Amazon caused by edge effects and 
                         fragmentation can be identified using rangefinder LiDAR. We 
                         compared forest fragment edge, fragment interior, and continuous 
                         forest in areas of the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments 
                         Project (BDFFP). We obtained the following canopy structural 
                         attributes: leaf area index, leaf area density in vertical 
                         profiles, canopy cover, height and rugosity of the upper canopy 
                         surface. These were derived from 100m long 2D profiles obtained 
                         with an upward-looking rangefinder LiDAR (Riegl LD90 - VHS3100 - 
                         FLP). The system (LiDAR, gimbal, computer and batteries) was 
                         carried by a field operator walking at a constant speed, using a 
                         metronome. The sensor was maintained 1m above the ground. 
                         Vegetation at the fragment edge had significantly lower canopy 
                         height and density understory compared to continuous forest. 
                         However, canopy cover and rugosity showed no significant 
                         difference. We concluded that LiDAR is a valuable tool, capable of 
                         identifying structural changes in the canopy caused by edge 
                         effects and fragmentation.",
