##### Definition

Crown cover (%) sensu Walker and Hopkins (1991) is the percentage of the ground surface covered by the vertical projection of the periphery of plant crowns. Crowns are treated as opaque meaning that small gaps within the crown are ignored. Crown cover (%) of a stratum is measured for the stratum as a whole i.e. ignoring crown overlaps within a stratum.
