The Importance of Large-Diameter Trees to Forest Structural Heterogeneity

Figure 1

Heterogeneity in density and basal area of the five principal tree species of the Wind River Forest Dynamics Plot in 2012.

Each boxplot represents values from the 640, 20×20 m quadrats of the plot. Boxplot boxes indicate the 25th percentile, median, and 75th percentile. Boxplot whiskers indicate the 5th percentile and the 95th percentile.
