Use of airborne lidar data to improve plant species richness and diversity monitoring in lowland and mountain forests

Fig 4

Number of ALS variables which were negative non-negligible or positive non-negligible when used in floristic models.

Abundance and richness models were considered in both the Lowland and Mountain sites. The ALS variables were extracted from circular plots within the same radius as the field plots (9 m at the Lowland site and 15 m at the Mountain site), and also with radii of 50 m, 100 m and 200 m.
