Appendix C. Solutions for NMS ordination of disturbance history (temporal patterns in basal area and mortality) in permanent plots at Dukes RNA and Huron Mountains.

Fig. C1. Temporal basal area pattern NMS ordination solution for Huron site. 2D solution – explained 96.6% of the variation in the original data matrix, Stress 9.263, *p* = 0.004. Axis 1 included as a predictor in multiple regression modeling.

Fig. C2. Temporal basal area pattern NMS ordination solution for Dukes site. 2D solution – explained 95% of the variation in the original data matrix, Stress 13.385, *p* = 0.004. Axis 2 included as a predictor in multiple regression modeling.

Fig. C3. Temporal mortality pattern NMS ordination solution for Dukes site. 2D Solution – explained 72.0% of the variation in the original data matrix, Stress 23.11, *p* = 0.004.

Fig. C4. Temporal mortality pattern NMS ordination solution for Dukes site. 2D Solution – explained 66.2% of the variation in the original data matrix, Stress 25.61, *p* = 0.004.
