Increasing stand stature weakens the positive effects of tree richness and structural imbalance on aboveground biomass in temperate forests: The stand stature hypothesis
Abbasi et al. conducted a study on Pakistan’s #temperate #forests near Mount #K2 and found that as the stand stature increases, the positive effects of tree richness and structural imbalance on aboveground #biomass decrease, despite the ubiquitous positive role of stand density.
