Abstract This paper describes an application of a gap model for the simulation of the succession of ground vegetation as controlled by the dynamics of tree stratum. Initial composition of the ground cover comprises grasses, herbs, dwarf shrubs, mosses and lichens occupying the site. The same species could survive throughout the successional period under study, but their abundance is modified by the availability of light and nitrogen in the forest floor, which is controlled by the gap dynamics… CONTINUE READING
