Appendix A. Species contributions to standing biomass and biomass dynamics.

Table A1. Percent contribution of individual species to aboveground tree biomass (AGTB), AGTB change as a consequence of tree growth (ΔAGTBincr), recruitment (ΔAGTBrecr), and mortality (ΔAGTBmort) in the early successional stage (10–24 years after abandonment) for the 25 species that comprise most of AGTB. SG = second-growth Specialist; G = Generalist; OG = old-growth Specialist; R = too rare to classify.
