Predictability , contingency , and convergence in late succession : Slow systems and complex datasets

Abstract

Questions: Are community dynamics in old-growth forests predictable? Convergent? Equilibrial? Are answers to these questions dependent on temporal and spatial scale? How can complex, long-term observational data be used most powerfully to address these questions? Location: 100-ha tract of old-growth cool-temperate forest in northern Michigan, USA.
