This study examined microclimatic variation following dispersed- and aggregated- retention harvest of mature coniferous forests in western Washington. We compared light, temperature (air and soil) and soil moisture among treatments representing differing levels and/or patterns of overstory retention 6-7 yr after harvest. Details of this work are presented in Heithecker (2005).
