Canopy gaps are important features in forest ecosystems, influencing plant species composition and animal habitat. The authors examined temperature records from gaps with diameter to height ratios of 2 to 1 and 4 to 1, and created maps of heat sums within the gaps. The results of our analysis show spatial variations within the gaps, as well as how these variations depend on gap size.
