Direct Effects of Elevation on Tree Size and Forest Density on Maderas Volcano, Nicaragua
The forest visually changes with elevation on Maderas Volcano in Nicaragua. This study investigates the attributes of the forest that change with elevation; by taking measurements of tree’s Diameter at Breast Height and Forest Density using the Point Center Quarter method at three different elevation sites. A significant decrease in forest density was found between the low elevation forests and the high elevation forests. The forest gets less dense as elevation increases on Maderas volcano.
