Leaf display in foliage canopies of equidistantly spaced corn plants was measured; the vertical distribution of leaf area within several angle classes are given at various stages ot growth for seven population densities. When used in computer simulations, these descriptions provide calculated light profiles which agree well with measured profiles. The canopies are compared with earlier and more general reports from other workers.
