How does one characterize habitats using lidar data (LAS files, LAS datasets, xyz files)?

Hi there,


I have a project in which I have been assigned to characterize different plant habitats (fern, grass, forest, and barrents) on a small island, using LiDAR data. The data I have consists of LAS and XYZ files, in addition to TIF and contour shape files I am already in possession of.


Does anyone know how I got from LAS datasets (or any derivative of the files I have) to start to characterize habitats?


Any and all help is greatly appreciated,
