The changing woodland.

This chapter provides details about the stands at the Lady Park Wood, UK. The chapter discusses how stands grow, Lady Park Wood as a chronosequence, early stand development and the impact of deer, and growing through the thicket. Further, the chapter explores mature stand development, woodland below the cliff, the general features of change over 145 years, disturbances and gaps, population changes, dead wood, as well as composition and diversity. Finally, the chapter presents some prospects for the unmanaged stands, comparisons with other woods, and stands in the managed compartment.
