5 - Sunlight & the Forest

Gleason, Wisconsin 54435, United States

Created By: UW-Madison


What effect does sunlight have on and in the forest? Prior to the storm of 2000, the forest floor received little light, so there was little or no ground cover. But trees fell during the storm creating gaps in the forest canopy. Sunlight enters through these gaps, allowing plants to grow once again on the forest floor. Can you see the differences in ground cover as you look through the forest? And look! – more “tip ups!”
