The variation of apparent crown size and canopy heterogeneity across lowland Amazonian forests
Aim: The size structure of a forest canopy is an important descriptor of the forest environment that may yield information on forest biomass and ecology. However, its variability at regional scales is poorly described or understood because of the still prohibitive cost of very high-resolution imagery as well as the lack of an appropriate methodology. We here employ a novel approach to describe and map the canopy structure of tropical forests. Location: Amazonia. Methods: We apply Fourier tran...Expand abstract
