                         richness over large areas and may be useful for species 
                         discrimination in tropical environments. Here, we analyze the main 
                         sources of variability in leaf spectral signatures of tropical 
                         trees and examine the potential of spectroscopic reflectance 
                         measurements (450 to 2450 nm) for tree species discrimination. We 
                         assess within-and among-species spectral variability and perform a 
                         feature selection procedure to identify wavebands in which the 
                         species most differ from each other. We assess the discriminative 
                         power of these wavebands by calculating a separability index and 
                         then classifying the species. Finally, leaf chemical and 
                         structural parameters of each species are retrieved by inversion 
                         of the leaf optical model PROSPECT-5. Among-species spectral 
                         variability is almost five times greater than within-species 
                         spectral variability. The feature selection procedure reveals that 
                         wavebands, where species most differ, are located at the visible, 
                         red edge, and shortwave infrared regions. Classification of the 
                         species using these wavebands reaches 96\\% overall accuracy.

                         inversion show that differences in leaf pigment concentrations and 
                         leaf internal structure are the most important parameters 
                         controlling the spectral variability of species. These parameters 
                         also contribute to the variation in red edge position among
