Forest Patterns

Use geometry to account for the extensive pine forest behind VMI -- regular, clumped, random populations [19]. Explain why it is interrupted by a deciduous forest. Can you determine the forest's age[21]? Its future[22]? ecotones[22] Are there more or fewer species on the edge of the pine forest versus the interior of the pine forest?

Find where W&L logged part of the pine forest behind VMI; describe the plants you find their now and try to determine the approximate age of the clearing -- seedlings[22] forest's age[21] old field succesion[23-5] . What old field plants do you find here?
