Abstract

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
