Comparison between the predicted APAR from Maestra and predictions by the stand-level model (Equation
) for each species within a stand or the total APAR of all species. The data correspond to (a) Stand 1, (b) Stand 2, (c,d) Stand 3, (e,f) Stand 4, and (g,h) Stand 5 in Table 1. (f,h) shows the predictions for the same stands as (e,g) but where the leaf area of a given species is positioned at the top of the crown and therefore each species is considered to be in a separate canopy layer to the others (as in Figure 2b). The solid lines are 1:1 lines and the dashed lines are lines fitted to the data that pass through the origin.
