To compute shade factors, we provide a set of tables in the Supplementary Material that contain the necessary values from the models (Tables S1-S4). The process for calculating the shade factor for a particular combination of age/dbh, species, and climate is provided in the Supplemental Material. Table S5 contains the species-climate combinations associated with each shade density class. Table S6 provides the species code for each taxon and Table S7 provides the code for each climate zone.
