Gap size frequency distributions are a useful metric to understanding gap formation processes, carbon balance and biodiversity across landscape. In tropical forests the challenge lies in the collection of these distributions. One useful approach is to use airborne laser scanning and this paper providing an as yet known insight into how these distributions differ between forest types, definition of gap size and data processing. It is shown that in each case power-law relationships are evident, though qualitative difference are observed.
