Abstract

•Environmental factors determine vegetation variability more than historical fire cultivation.•3.8–5.2% of vegetation variability can be explained by rotational slash-and-burn cultivation.•Ancient forest indicator species are present in former slash-and-burn cultivation sites.•Subsequent land use affects vegetation more than 19th-century slash-and-burn practices.
