Various types of woodland exhibit different sorts of climate data. Temperature, humidity and lighting conditions do not only depend on meteorological factors but also on the nature of the vegetation. The density of the tree canopy determines how much light can penetrate and therefore affects the temperature. The low density of vegetation on a managed highland forestry estate (often beech forests at European latitudes) also affects the movement of winds in the forest, which also affects humidity. In this outdoor experiment, we will be conducting measurements on various types of woodland during the same day and at approximately the same time in order to eliminate meteorological differences as far as possible.
