Author Correction: Tree mode of death and mortality risk factors across Amazon forests

The Original Article was published on 09 November 2020

Correction to: Nature Communications, published online 9 November 2020.

The original version of this Article contained an error in Table 2, where the number of individuals in the “All Amazonia” row was reported as 11,6431 instead of 116,431. Also, the original version of this Article contained an error in the Methods, where the R2 for the proportion of broken/uprooted dead trees increase per year was reported as 0.12, the correct value being 0.06.

The original version of this Article contained errors in the author affiliations. The affiliation of Gerardo A. Aymard C. with UNELLEZ-Guanare, Herbario Universitario (PORT), Portuguesa, Venezuela Compensation International Progress S.A. Ciprogress–Greenlife, Bogotá, D.C., Colombia was inadvertently omitted. Gerardo A. Aymard C. was incorrectly associated with Instituto de Investigaciones de la Amazonia Peruana, Iquitos, Peru.

This has now been corrected in both the PDF and HTML versions of the Article.
