The attached graphic depicts the magnitude per unit area of seedlings in forest openings. The intended target for this graphic is a peer review journal such as Ecological Modelling where I intend to add the map as a figure to support my research. I would appreciate any advice on how to make the figure more presentable for a scientific audience. I should note that I plan to add specific details about the graphic (e.g. sample size per gap) as figure text. Thank you in advance for your comments.
