Heterogeneity of forest characteristics in primary and secondary forest stands on the third Chickasaw loess bluff, Tennessee

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In this study, the AA. hypothesized that primary and secondary forest stands in western Tennessee would exhibit different patterns of heterogeneity. They contrasted non-spatial and spatial components of heterogeneity for a mid-successional forest (55 years old) and an adjacent primary forest, using both direct and indirect measures. The nonspatial components included : the vertical complexity of the forests with respect to tree sizes/layers, a measure of species diversity, and the statistical variance of structural and compositional indices in the 2 stands. Spatial aspects of heterogeneity were measured using : quadrat blocking techniques, species-accumulation curves, and semivariograms of structural and compositional variables along the sample transects
