A FOREST GALLERY - Understanding layers

Forests have multiple layers, and differences in these layers make the character of each forest different. All these layers are interdependent on each other. Topography shapes the structure, composition, and function of forest landscapes because of these different topographical conditions there is a difference in the Wetness degree of the soil which later affects the plant composition and the character of the forest. Changes in Plant composition and character make different vegetation grains. Due to the change in plant composition, there is a change in the amount of sunlight entering the forest. Therefore Sky porosity grains becomes as important as vegetation grains. 
Can we use this forest to demonstrate these layers of forest? Topography, Wetness degree, Plant layers, Sky Porosity
Forest which speaks to users and explains what a forest is.
