Short summary
This paper provides a unique insight into vertical distribution of leaf area index across North American ecosystems using spaceborne lidar data. This data set of leaf area index and vertical foliage profile can help set up a baseline of canopy structure needed for evaluating climate and land use induced forest changes at continental scale in the future.
