Abstract
The study of the leaf size spectra and foliar concentrations of N, P, K, Ca, Mg and Na of 52 species sampled in three Central-Amazon inundation forests (2 várzea sites, 1 igapó site) yielded signifìcant differences between várzea and igapó forests. The várzea foliage consists of larger and less heavy leaves with elemental concentrations being high even by tropical standards. The igapó foliage consists of relatively small leaves which are heavier, but much lower in the studied elements. The igapó leaves are supposed to be sclerophyllous and evergreen.
