An improved model of neighbourhood interference and its application in a forest-herb ecosystem


, : An improved model of neighbourhood interference and its application in a forest-herb ecosystem. Journal of Nanjing Forestry University 23(3): 16-20

Two agroforestry systems in which Eucommia ulmoides was intercropped with either Trifolium pratense and T. repens, or with Lolium perenne, and a mixed community of E. ulmoides and Artemisia spp., were investigated and the relationship between height growth rate of individual trees and the interference intensity of neighbourhood herbaceous species was analysed using an improved model of neighbourhood interference.
