    Description

    There are currently only about 7,900 acres (3,200 ha) of remnant old-growth forest in Missouri, but public land management plans call for old-growth acreage to increase to more than 200,000 acres (81,000 ha). To develop a better quantitative understanding of the transitions that are likely as current forests mature to an old-growth state, we compared a number of characteristics measured for two old-growth sites with values for two mature second-growth sites.
