Discordance in spatial patterns of white pine ( Pinus strobus ) size-classes in a patchy near-boreal forest

  author={Lee E. Frelich and Peter B. Reich},
1 White pines ( Pinus strobus ) in a c . 1 ha near-boreal aspen-red maple stand in the western Great Lakes region, USA, were allocated to five size-classes that were tested for discordance of their spatial patterns (i.e. within-size-class spatial distribution of individuals and spatial associations among different size-classes). The size-classes were 0.5–1 m tall, 1–2 m tall, 2–4 m tall, > 4 m tall but < 20 cm diameter at breast height (d.b.h.), and > 20 cm d.b.h. The size-classes also differed… CONTINUE READING
