In contrast, broad-leaved species such as Beilschmiedia tawa (Lauraceae) and Weinmannia racemosa (Cunoniaceae) usually have all-sized populations, indicating more continual recruitment.
These were, in order of decreasing basal area, Nothofagus menziesii (Fagaceae), Weinmannia racemosa (Cunoniaceae), Dacrydium cupressinum (Podocarpaceae), and Prumnopitys ferruginea (Podocarpaceae).
No age data were obtained for Weinmannia racemosa, as the growth ring characteristics of this species posed difficulties for interpreting increment cores.
Prumnopitys ferruginea and Weinmannia racemosa had steeper distributions, with stems [less than]20 cm dbh accounting for 76% and 81%, respectively, of their populations.
Because no increment cores were obtained from Weinmannia racemosa, there are no data on tree ages or growth histories for this species.
