Data from: How tree species identity and diversity affect light transmittance to the understory in mature temperate forests

Bram K. Sercu, Lander Baeten, Frieke Van Coillie, An Martel, Luc Lens, Kris Verheyen & Dries Bonte
Light is a key resource for plant growth and is of particular importance in forest ecosystems, because of the strong vertical structure leading to successive light interception from canopy to forest floor. Tree species differ in the quantity and heterogeneity of light they transmit. We expect decreases in both the quantity and spatial heterogeneity of light transmittance in mixed stands relative to monocultures, due to complementarity effects and niche filling. 2. We tested the degree...
