Title: Topographic frequency of trees in the tabonuco forest of the Luquillo Mountains
Author: Wadsworth, Frank H.;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: A previous study of tree productivity in the subtropical wet forest of the Luquillo Mountains of Puerto Rico was used to expose the frequency of 12 timber tree species to six different topographic sites, convex versus concave surface, lower versus upper slopes, and windward versus leeward aspects. All but one of the species are found in all six locations and the frequency of all have concentrations suggesting that if that is also where they grow best, they should be selected there for productivity, and should best be replanted there.
Keywords: Montane topography, subtropical wet forest, forest tree frequency, Puerto Rico
