tree layer


Explanation:
Agree with Laura's reading; you could even say "species diversification".
as in the following example (UN/ECE monitoring program)
.17.2.2 Observations

According to its stratification and functional groups the vegetation of the intensive plot should be separated into layers. No specific height limits of trees and shrubs can be given, but here is an example:

tree layer: trees > 5 m
shrub layer: trees 1-5 m, morphological shrubs >1 m
field layer: trees and shrubs <1 m, other vascular plants irrespective of height
bottom layer: bryophytes and lichens
