That portion of the trees or other vegetation in a forest stand below the canopy.
Trees, shrubs and other plants located beneath and in the shade of larger trees.
Layer of plants near the ground.

Vegetation growing in the shade of taller plants.
the level of forest vegetation beneath the canopy.
low growing trees and shrubs under a forest canopy. Any plant growing under a taller tree.
Plants growing beneath the canopy of other plants, usually grasses, forbs, and low shrubs growing under a forest canopy.
The layer of decomposed and decomposing leaves of the forest floor.
the lowest forest level which covers the area between the ground and 10 meters (33 feet)
The layer formed by grasses, shrubs, and small trees under the canopy of larger trees and plants.
lowest level of plants under taller plant species
the lowermost strata of shrubs or herbaceous vegeation.
the layer formed by the leaves and branches of the smaller trees under the forest canopy.
the smaller vegetation (shrubs, seedlings, saplings, small trees) within a forest stand, occupying the vertical zone between the overstory and the herbaceous plants of the forest floor.
That vegetation which characterizes the lower level of plants in a forest; the vegetation below the canopy.
refers to the plant community that typically lives under the canopy of trees.
The aggregate of smaller plants growing beneath the canopy of dominant plants in a forest.
Low-growing vegetation that forms a layer beneath the overstory.
the plants living underneath the canopy of taller plants- usually refers to the plants growing under a tree canopy.
all vegetation growing under an overstory
Any plants, particularly shrubs, growing under a tree canopy.
The level of the rain forest just below the canopy. Insects flew through the understory.
Trees or other plants which tolerate reduced-light conditions and normally grow beneath the forest canopy.
Assortment of plants that grow underneath the canopy as ground cover, forbs, and shrubs.
The trees and other woody species growing under a more-or-less continuous cover of branches and foliage formed collectively by the upper portion of adjacent trees and other woody growth.
Plants growing beneath the canopy of other plants. Usually refers to grasses, forbs, and low shrubs under a tree or shrub overstory.
The smaller trees beneath the forest canopy.
Plants such as small trees, bushes, herbs and grasses that grow below the canopy level in a forest. In the North Cascades, dense understories commonly occur in areas where abundant light falls on the forest floor, such as recently burned sites.
The area below the forest canopy that comprises shrubs, snags and small tree. Because the understory receives little light, many of the plants at this level tolerate shade and will remain part of the understory. Others will grow and replace older trees that fall.
The understory of a rainforest is a dark, cool environment under the tree leaves (the canopy) but over the forest floor.
The understory of a rainforest is a dark, cool environment under the leaves in the trees (the canopy) of a forest, but over the ground.
The vegetation that grows below the canopy of a forest.
Vegetation that occurs as the bottom layer of a multilevel plant community, such as the herbs and grasses growing beneath trees or shrubs.
plants that grow beneath the tallest canopy of trees
The foliage layer beneath the forest canopy, composed of young trees that are growing beneath the taller mature trees and the large shrubs.
The layer of trees in the rainforest that is 15 to 45 feet tall
Understory (or understorey) is the term for the area of a forest which grows in the shade of the emergent or canopy forest canopy. Plants in the understory consist of a mixture of seedlings and saplings of canopy trees together with understory shrubs and herbs. Young canopy trees often persist as suppressed juveniles for decades while they wait for an opening in the forest overstory which will enable their growth into the canopy.
