  1. pmc Crown plasticity and competition for canopy space: a new spatially implicit model parameterized for 250 North American tree species
    Drew W Purves
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 2:e870. 2007
    ..Any such method must capture the fact that trees are highly plastic in their growth, forming tessellating crown shapes that fill all or most of the canopy space...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105:17018-22. 2008
    ..Consistent with this, the PPA predicted that, on these soils, stands are now succeeding to dominance by other late-successional species (e.g., Fraxinus nigra, A. rubrum)...
  5. ncbi request reprint Unlocking the forest inventory data: relating individual tree performance to unmeasured environmental factors
    Jeremy W Lichstein
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey 08544, USA
    Ecol Appl 20:684-99. 2010
    ..Our approach could be extended to estimate parameters relating sapling mortality to L from inventory data, as well as to deal with uncertainty in other resources (e.g., water or nutrients) or environmental factors (e.g., temperature)...
  6. pmc Quantifying variation in forest disturbance, and its effects on aboveground biomass dynamics, across the eastern United States
    Mark C Vanderwel
    Computational Ecology and Environmental Science Group, Microsoft Research, Cambridge, UK
    Glob Chang Biol 19:1504-17. 2013
    ..The effects of increased tree mortality on carbon stocks and forest composition may thus depend partly on whether future mortality increases are chronic or episodic in nature...
  7. pmc Understanding height-structured competition in forests: is there an R* for light?
    Thomas P Adams
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 274:3039-47. 2007
    ..The special case in which species differ in all parameters except crown transmissivity gives hierarchical competition, where the equivalent of R* is Z*, the height at which trees enter the canopy in an equilibrium monoculture...

    Alexander R Barron
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544, USA
    Oecologia 165:511-20. 2011
    ..Our findings suggest that canopy legumes closely regulate N(2) fixation, leading to large variations in N inputs across the landscape, and low symbiotic fixation in mature forests despite abundant legumes...
