Full Text:



Woody structure and composition is recorded to provide for calculating per species, stem growth form and height class: (a) canopy regime at different height levels; (b) total projected canopy cover; and (c) density. Quadrat size is determined independently at each site for each height class to suit the density and distribution of plants.
