Project 1

The Effects of Light Availability and Soil Type on Forest Structure

Participants: Megan Bartlett

Abstract: Forest structure- measured as the proportion of individual plants in multiple growth form categories- was compared between shale and clay soils in the Lambir Forest CTFS plot, and correlated with canopy openness. It was found that clay soils supported a higher proportion of understory growth forms compared to shale soils, and that these soil type effects were independent of canopy openness.
