Abstract

Diversity of understory plant species in a disturbed subalpine forest in the Colorado Rockies was examined to explore the hypothesis that intermediate levels of disturbance generate and maintain high levels of diversity. The AA. use a natural experiment, where a severe but patchy windstorm damaged the canopy of a subalpine forest in the Colorado Front Range in 1974. The results suggest that intermediate levels of disturbance severity may offer more microhabitats, at least temporarily, for a wider range of species
