Gaps are very important structure for the maintenance mechanism of tree populations, community organization or species diversity of forest communities.

Natural sunlight provides the illumination required for taking hemispherical photographs in forests. In turn, such photographs can then be interpreted to provide a description of the plant canopy and : Theory-for. The mean azimuth and zenith angle of diffuse and direct radiation were determined from hemispherical photographs taken above each plant.

Mean diffuse radiation vectors were distributed around the zenith, with a significant clustering in an easterly direction, while mean direct radiation vectors were distributed along the solar track in the Peter Schall Silviculture and Forest Ecology of the Temperate Zones, a comparison with hemispherical photography.
