The Spatial Patterns of Uneven-aged Beech Forest Stand Layers

N.V. Rehush, Yu.Yo. Kahanyak

Abstract


The horizontal distribution pattern of trees in uneven-aged beech stand layers of different forest categories was assessed. The randomness, clumping, and regularity of trees in the forest stands were evaluated using Clark-Evans, Cox and Pielou indices. The significant degree of disturbance regimes (natural and anthropogenic) for the spatial structure of the beech forest stands in southwestern part of Ukrainian Carpathians was assessed. The linear correlation factor between types of horizontal distribution patterns of the trees in the layers and forest stands parameters was calculated.
