Effects of deer browsing on natural regeneration in a macchia coppice stand



Effects of deer browsing on natural regeneration in a macchia coppice stand



Monti e Boschi 42(5): 15-22



Shoot growth was evaluated for four years following coppicing in a control (fenced) and grazed (unfenced) plot in a nature reserve in coastal Tuscany, central Italy. Browsing damage by roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) and fallow deer (Dama dama) was selective, based on plant species' palatability. Fraxinus ornus, Phillyrea latifolia and Quercus ilex, the dominant coppiced species, suffered the most damage, which was to crown size and height growth.
