The contribution of jays to oak regeneration in a naturalistically managed forest in the Lunburg Heath


, : The contribution of jays to oak regeneration in a naturalistically managed forest in the Lunburg Heath. Forst und Holz 50(20): 643-646

A study was made of the distribution and numbers of oak seedlings resulting from the natural distribution of acorns by jays in an area of N. Germany consisting mainly of heathland and pure Scots pine stands. The growth and success of these oak seedlings differs in the various types of ground and scrub vegetation, and areas with dense tall herbaceous vegetation are particularly unfavourable.
