Individual tree mortality creates gaps in the main canopy layer, allowing light to penetrate the main canopy and create favorable conditions for photosynthesis in the understory (which is why old-growth understory is more developed than in immature stands). Forest regenerated after a severe disruption, such as clearcutting or fire, is often called second-growth or regeneration until enough time passes for the effects of the disturbance to be no longer evident.
