Effects of thinning on the ecophysiology of forest stands


Schweizerische Zeitschrift fur Forstwesen 138(8): 685-700
Effects of thinning on the ecophysiology of forest stands
On the basis of the literature and studies at Nancy (France), a survey is made of the changes in microclimate caused by thinning, viz. light, temperature, water balance, and humus mineralization. In addition, the changes in the functioning of trees following the microclimatic changes are reviewed, viz. change in the amount of foliage, moisture stress, transpiration, photosynthetic activity, and growth.
