Abstract

The distinct structural and compositional features, understorey light conditions and understorey vegetation of old-growth forests in boreal, temperate and tropical biomes are discussed. Old-growth forests are characterised by gap dynamics that create a structurally complex and dynamic vertical and horizontal crown and understorey light environment. In both temperate and tropical forests, gaps tend to close quickly from both regrowth of lateral crown and understorey vegetation. In boreal forests, gaps tend to last longer and fill mainly from understorey vegetation. Understorey light is generally below 5% near the forest floor in all biomes, with very few microsites having high light levels. Above the main understorey vegetation, however, light is more variable and can reach up to 65% in some old-growth boreal forests. This heterogeneous, complex and unpredictable understorey light environment acts as a selective filter that promotes unique understorey plant adaptations
