Stand  [ Botany - Ecology - Agronomy ]

Dictionary of botanic terminology - index of names

  A community of plants occupying a continuous area that possesses sufficient uniformity in species composition, constitution, size, age, spatial arrangement, or condition to be distinguishable from adjacent communities.  
A contiguous growth of similar plants (usually a group - or cluster - of upright forestal trees) distinguished and separated from surrounding stands and managed as a single distinguishable unit. A pure stand is a measurable unit of timber composed of mostly a single tree species. A mixed stand is composed of a mixture of tree species. Differences could be species, average diameter, density and location.
