We investigated the spatial association between isolated adult trees and understory plants from distinct life-forms. While most of the understory life-forms were neutral to negatively associated with adult trees, young trees were positively associated with them. These results indicate a positive feedback between trees that potentially explain the transition between open vegetation to forest in subtropical coastal dunes.
