Comparison of sapling communities in areas influenced and not influenced by large arborescent palm trees. We show the sapling density (stem density 25 m-2), observed number of species (species number 25 m-2), and rarefied species richness (species per two individuals) for 5 × 5m quadrats that contain or are adjacent to a large palm (N = 1,471), and quadrats that are > 1 quadrat from a palm quadrat (N = 8,301). We show the mean ± SE.
