Short summary
Forest overstory and understory layers differ in carbon and water cycle regimes and phenology, as well as ecosystem functions. In this paper, overstory and understory LAI values were estimated separately for global needleleaf and deciduous broadleaf forests. This work would help us better understand the seasonal patterns of forest structure, evaluate the ecosystem functions and improve the modeling of the forest carbon and water cycles.
