    The study of forest canopies has evolved from a new line of research into a fascinating discipline that has changed the way we perceive forest ecosystems (Nadkarni ; Nadkarni et al. Canopy structure is the organization or spatial arrangement (three-dimensional geometry) of a plant canopy. Leaf area index (LAI), leaf area per unit ground area, is a key measure used to understand and compare plant canopies. It is also taller than the understory layer. The canopy holds 90% of the animals in the rainforest.
