Diversity of tree species in mountain riparian forest in relation to disturbance-mediated microtopography
In riparian forests, concurrent disturbances of the canopy and ground is thought to be responsible for the high hardwood and herb species diversity, both in terms of species richness as well as equitability (Baker 1990; Nillson et al. 1989; Pabst & Spies 1999).
