Abstract: Characterizing and visualizing the vertical trends of three-dimensional (3D) structures help the science community and the public better conceptualize and perceive the structural complexity embedded in nature. We used terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) coupled with transect vegetation surveys to characterize vegetative struct

Abstract: The diamond received human beings interest much early in history as they imagined that it resembles haven in its sparkling sight. Then, they speculated that the source of diamond occurs in heaven. But how it reached earth’s surface? Their hypothesis, which called now legend, says that Adam brought it when God expelled him f

Abstract: The sustainability of coral populations depends on the steady supply of sexually produced offspring, especially as coral populations attempt to adjust to climate change. Therefore, information on the density, diversity, and survival of juvenile corals is vital for predicting recruitment success and determining the trajector
