Why would we hypothesize that the stand structure in these two urban forests would be similar?
What influences or factors could make the stand structure in these two urban forests different?
Using the comparison of Importance Values that you calculated for these woods, in a qualitative manner, should we accept or reject our hypothesis? Please explain.
Does the concept of the Importance Value accurately capture differences or similarities in stand structure between the two urban forests? What does it tell us?
What do you consider the limitations to this study? Are these major or minor limitations?
Considering the experimental design, how could you improve this study?
