Forest Canopy Gap Distributions in the Southern Peruvian Amazon

Figure 4

Graphical representation of size-frequency distributions of canopy gaps on erosional terra firme and depositional floodplain substrates in the southwestern Peruvian Amazon at two height thresholds.

The slopes of these lines are power-law exponents from the Zeta distribution that we estimated using maximum likelihood. Additional details are in Appendices S1 and S2.
