             abstract = "Inland fisheries underpin food security in many tropical 
                         countries. The most productive inland fisheries in tropical and 
                         subtropical developing countries occur in large riverfloodplain 
                         systems that are often impacted by land cover changes. However, 
                         few studies to date have assessed the effects of changes in 
                         floodplain land cover on fishery yields. Here, we integrated 
                         fisheries and satellite-mapped habitat data to evaluate the 
                         effects of floodplain deforestation on fishery yields in 68 
                         floodplain lake systems of the lower Amazon River, representing a 
                         wide range in relative amounts of woody, herbaceous and 
                         non-vegetated land cover. We modelled relative fish yields (fish 
                         capture per unit effort [CPUE]) in the floodplain lakes as a 
                         function of the relative amounts of forest, shrub, aquatic 
                         macrophyte and bare/herbaceous habitats surrounding them. We found 
                         that forest amount was positively related (p = .0003) to 
                         multispecies CPUE. The validity of these findings was supported by 
                         rejection of plausible alternative causative mechanisms involving 
                         habitat-related differences in amount of piscivores, fishing 
                         effort, lake area, and habitat effects on CPUE of the nine taxa 
                         dominating multispecies yields. Our results provide support to the 
                         idea that removal of floodplain forests reduces fishery yields per 
                         unit effort. Increased protection of floodplain forests is 
                         necessary to maintain the food, income and livelihood security 
                         services provided by large riverfloodplain fisheries.",
