Abstract

Natural forests are composed of a heterogeneous mixture of plant architectures that change temporally and spatially. In addition, variation in ridges, tree falls, natural clearing, logs and animal or man-made paths results in a topographic complexity which is likely to have a profound effect on the movements of animals within the forest.
