Frederic Holzwarth, Anja Kahl, Jürgen Bauhus and Christian Wirth Many ways to die – partitioning tree mortality dynamics in a near-natural mixed deciduous forest Journal of Ecology 101
Modelled annual mortality logits and probabilities over d.b.h. (cm) for beech. Median estimates and 95% credible interval. Tree mortality can be partitioned into different processes related to six distinct mortality modes, jointly explaining the emergent U-shaped curve of size-dependent mortality. This forms a fundamental basis for the understanding of forest dynamics in natural forests and may improve mechanistic modelling thereof.
