Summary: We give a functional limit law for the normalized profile of random plane-oriented recursive trees. The proof uses martingale convergence theorems in discrete and continuous-time. This complements results of H.-K. Hwang [Random Struct. Algorithms 30, No. 3, 380–413 (2007; Zbl 1115.05083)].
