Structure and spatial patterns of trees in old-growth northern hardwood and mixed forests of northern Maine

  title={Structure and spatial patterns of trees in old-growth northern hardwood and mixed forests of northern Maine},
  author={Unna Chokkalingam and Alan White},
  journal={Plant Ecology},
Stand structure including spatial patterns was studied in northern hardwood and mixed forest types in the 2000-ha old-growth Big Reed Forest Reserve in northern Maine using complete stem mapping, dendrochronology, and spatial analyses on ∼0.5 plots. The inclusion of saplings, dead wood, age distributions, spatial pattern, and interactions provided some idea of underlying processes and temporal change. Structural characteristics were most comparable to spruce-northern hardwood forests of… CONTINUE READING
