Seasonally dry tropical forests (SDTFs) extend across the world within the band of tropical latitudes where high temperatures and seasonal rainfall result in extended periods of predictable water stress (Mooney et al. 1995; Miles et al. 2006). This seasonal water stress is reflected in the composition of the plant communities and the animal communities reliant on those plants, and influences the way forest-dependent people interact with their environment.
