Vegetation crown cover is a popular structural descriptor in both the remote sensing and ecological fields. However, several different definitions of vegetation crown cover are commonly measured and used, and relating one against the other is often difficult. In this study we derive simple expressions relating mature forest crown cover (CC), foliage projective cover (FPC) and leaf area index (LAI) using canopy gap fraction and canopy clumping theory. The relationship between FPC and CC is showndoi:10.6084/m9.figshare.94249.v1 fatcat:dhwn5fio25eipm5jauftbtn5z4
