Impact of wild ungulates on forest regeneration and tree composition of mountain forests in the western Italian Alps


Impact of wild ungulates on forest regeneration and tree composition of mountain forests in the western Italian Alps



Forest Ecology and Management 88(1-2): 93-98



ISSN/ISBN: 0378-1127

DOI: 10.1016/s0378-1127(96)03814-5

The impact of ungulates on forest regeneration was observed in six localities of the Italian western Alps recently colonized by deer (particularly Cervus elaphus and Capreolus capreolus) and having different densities of other ungulates (Rupicapra rupicapra, Ovis musimon and Sus scrofa). The occurrence of bark stripping, browsing and fraying damage was analysed on broadleaved trees, and on Pinus sylvestris, P. uncinata, P. cembra, Abies alba and Larix decidua.
