    Description

    Understory composition was measured on 960 10.5 m2 plots in 16 stands on the West Virginia University Forest in north-central West Virginia. The overstory composition was dominated by oaks (Quercus spp.) on 50% of the stands and by a mixture of oaks and yellow-poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera L.) on 50%. All stands were without recent disturbance and ranged in age from 60 to 100 years. All woody stems under 7 cm dbh were counted by size class and percent cover was estimated for woody and herbaceous vegetation.
