" Cambridge University Press, New York. 3 Canopy Architecture and Micro climate The a t m o s p h e r i c e n v i r o n m e n t acts on plant c o m m u n i t i e s t h r o u g h their canopies. T h e r e f o r e , if we are to u n d e r s t a n d a n d be able to describe quantitatively the way the a t m o s p h e r e acts on forests, we m u s t have g o o d descriptions of forest canopies and m e t h o d s of describing t h e m that can be applied to all forests.

At one extreme, these forests are allowed to regenerate naturally following disturbance such as fire or harvesting. Despite the slow growth rates on low-quality sites, biomass accumulation can be substantial over several centuries. The harvesting of mature, slow growing forests is controversial, because these forests serve o t h e r valuable functions, such as providing wilderness areas extensively used for recreation, wildlife refuges, and stable water catchments. They also have great aesthetic appeal.

The low species diversity is attributed to the short-term geologic history and the harsh climate of this biome (Woodward, 1995). In general, boreal species arrived in this region less than 2000 years ago. Therefore, the ecology of this large forest biome is y o u n g e r than any other (Takhtajan, 1986). The distribution of species, and the species composition of stands are strongly influenced by t o p o g r a p h y and soils. I m p o r t a n t genera include Abies, Betula, Larix, Picea, Populus, and Salix.
