Appendix D. Hurricane damage effects on stem growth rates over time.

Table D1. Hurricane damage effects on stem growth rates over time, for stems surviving the whole period 1974–2009 (n = 915 stems, 41 species). Site effects give the average growth rate (cm/yr) of undamaged stems from 1974–1984 at each site. Further parameter estimates for undamaged trees at different time periods are referred to that baseline (undamaged stems, 1974–1984). Parameter estimates for damaged stems are referred to the growth rates of undamaged stems for the respective time period. Plot, species and individual were included as random effects. R² = 0.38.
