    Introduction We know that light is an important part of both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. In a forest system both the canopy and the understory absorb light. The type of forest and leaf cover present determines the amount of light that reaches the understory. This can be measured using the LAI (Leaf Area Index), which is the amount of leaves per unit ground area. Light quantity in forests is affected by several factors such as tree species, age, and density. Looking at the amount of light

    Tropical Forest: Tropical forest’s major features are equatorial and subequatorial regions. The climate revolves around typically high temperatures. Tropical rain forests tend to receive large amounts of rainfall ranging between 200-400cm. On the other hand, tropical dry forests receive 150-200cm of precipitation and has 6 to 7 months of no precipitation, also known as the dry season. (Urry, Pearson, 2017) Tropical forests are covered by large amounts of plant life that overlap each other, which

In that span of time, “…the Northeast would show forests which had occupied 90% of the landscape in 1700 occupied less than 30% in 1900.” Forest ecology is arguably one of the important factors when looking at the long-term history and evolution of one’s bioregion. When European settlers made their most significant landfall with the intent on permanent

    tell the melting glaciers has changed Minnesota a lot. It left many rivers and lakes on the Minnesota landscape and carved out a network of deep valleys. Besides, the main climate change has supported a wide range of vegetarian, such as pine forest, deciduous forest, and prairies. As can be seen, these biomes drew the attention of American Indians, and European, which they arrived and occupied the territory. From the 1680s to the 1840s, Europeans and American Indians began to trade the fur bear. The

    The White Mountains National Forest in New Hampshire is located within the Northeast Mountains region of the major Land Resource Areas as defined by the Natural Resource Conservation Service. This area is defined by its rounded mountains and foothills as well as its mixed forest of northern hardwoods, fir and spruce. High gradient streams flow into swamps and lakes in the steep valleys. These characteristics create a unique ecosystem that provides many services for people and wildlife. Land features

    The data from the harvested stand and unharvested stand shows that wood thrush would likely be able to find a suitable breeding, nesting, and foraging habitat in this section of the Vermont National Forest (Table 1), particularly in the unharvested stand, though improved management practices could make the harvested stand more suitable. Wood thrush commonly hide their nests under leaves in a shady area in the midstory level, so it is important to have vertically and horizontally diverse stands (Hagenbauch

    Climate and Mixed and Coniferous Forests Climate and latitude play an important part in how vegetation develops in a given area. Plants, especially trees and shrubs which make up the majority of many forests, adapt over time to a given environment and location. In the more southern latitudes you will often find that tropical vegetation such as palm trees and succulent shrubs will dominate the local ecosystem. Within the more northern latitudes, vegetation will often vary between broadleaf or coniferous
