The six most important species, based on RIV (in descending order), were Fagus grandifolia, Acer saccharum
, Prunus serotina, Fraxinus americana, Carya cordiformis and Quercus rubra.
Candelaria concolor (Dickson) Stein Common on a variety of substrates including a fiberglass boat frame, cloth, painted aluminum fencing (#2080), weathered concrete, granite and wood, and on the limbs and trunks of several species of trees including Acer saccharum
(#980), Juglans nigra (#1031), Quercus alba (#1008) and Ulmus rubra (#994).
The more dominant trees include Acer saccharum
, Carya cordiformis, C.
Oak forests are considered to be an early-to-mid stage of succession, with the next stage composed of more shade-tolerant but fire-intolerant trees such as Acer saccharum
Sapp"--The canopy was closed and dominated by Acer saccharum
, Carya ovata, and Fraxinus americana; the understory included six species of myrmecochorous plants, and the density of myrmecochores was high
Dominant tree species are Acer saccharum
, Carya spp.
The Black Hand sandstone cliffs that dominate Deep Woods create environmental and soil conditions that encourage the growth of the following dominant tree species: Liriodendron tulipifera, Acer saccharum
, and Betula alleghaniensis (Table 3).

Comparisons of tree species abundance, distribution, and dominance as a function of sampling date and tree age class are discussed with regard to forest recovery from disturbance during the past 11 years, with emphasis upon the increasing importance of Acer saccharum
