After 50 yr, we re-mapped old-growth boreal spruce forest sites with canopy gaps to assess natural gap dynamics. Gaps may partly extend, close, or merge. Gap disappearance rate is a function of actual gap size, and performance of a patch is determined by the developments in neighbouring patches. We propose an “open matrix model” to describe the gap dynamics.
