Abstract The components of gap dynamics, consisting of spatial and temporal factors and of magnitude, are also applicable to disturbance dynamics. Comparing research results in gap and disturbance dynamics on different geographical locations is a useful tool for the investigation, prediction and implementation of the impact of different disturbance types in several forest ecosystems. The exact description of key terms, concepts and methodologies of research are very important for these comparisons. A digital database, containing details on research parameters like location, plot size and disturbance frequency, could form an interesting guide for future research.
