Short summary
Canopy height and gaps of tropical peat swamp forests, measured by airborne laser scanning, were influenced by an interplay of environmental factors and selective logging. Structural recovery after logging depended strongly on peat depth and the landscape-scale relationship between forest height and canopy gap structure was lost in selectively logged forests. Results suggest slowest recovery on deep waterlogged and infertile peat, which is of relevance to management and conservation activities.
