Composition and structure of an old-growth floodplain forest of the lower Kaskaskia River



Composition and structure of an old-growth floodplain forest of the lower Kaskaskia River



General Technical Report North Central Research Station, USDA Forest Service (NC-234): 146-158



Compositional and structural properties of canopy, shrub/sapling, and ground-cover strata were measured within an old-growth floodplain forest bordering the lower Kaskaskia River in southwestern Illinois. Basal area for trees was estimated at 31.8 m2/ha, tree density was 398 trees/ha with 27 species recorded in the canopy stratum. The dominant tree species were Acer saccharinum, A. negundo, Carya laciniosa, Ulmus rubra, and Quercus macrocarpa.
