DescriptionAn adaptation in the use of Lemmon's spherical densiometer, has been developed to measure low overstory crown foliage as intercept above a line transect. This adaptation provides added information for the evaluation of ecological relationships within and among plant communities where some species are too low for overstory density estimates and too high for direct intercept measurements, e.g., mountain mahogany (Cercocarpus ledifolius) and western juniper (Juniperus occidentalis).
