Abstract

The sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marsh) component in a southern Illinois forest increased over a 48-year period. By 1983 sugar maple was three times greater in importance than any other species in the stand. If the observed rate of increase were to continue, sugar maple would exclude all other species within another 50 to 60 years.
