As part of a larger study on the effect of an experimentally-created gap within a forest on adult canopy trees, focuses on the possible effect of tree height versus type of species on radial growth response to gap creation. Sample includes fifty trees within four transects next to a gap in the Yale-Myers Experimental Forest in Connecticut, with results showing that type of species affects radial growth response.
