The Importance of Large-Diameter Trees to Forest Structural Heterogeneity

Figure 4

Univariate spatial patterns for abundant small-diameter tree species in the Wind River Forest Dynamics Plot.

Solid black lines show the statistic for the actual patterns, where r is the intertree distance; thin gray lines show curves for 999 simulations of complete spatial randomness. Positive values of indicate spatial clumping and negative values of indicate spatial regularity.
