Canopy gaps are an important ecological component in forested landscapes. One limitation to investigating gaps is the lack of efficient, accurate, and objective methods to characterize gap size and shape. This study aimed at investigating various methodologies to overcome this limitation. Six man-made canopy gaps were measured in a coniferous and a deciduous Stand (total of twelve) using a terrestrial laser scanner. Using the point clouds from these measurements, gap sizes were manually derived… CONTINUE READING
