Characterizing the canopy gap structure of a disturbed forest using Fourier transform

Publications Posted on: May 29, 2015
Diseases and other small-scale disturbances alter spatial patterns of heterogeneity in forests by killing trees. Canopy gaps caused by tree death are a common feature of forests. Because gaps are caused by different disturbances acting at different times and places, operationally determining the locations of gap edges is often difficult.
