Allelopathy in northern temperate and boreal semi-natural woodland

Allelopathy in northern temperate and boreal semi-natural woodland

Critical Reviews in Plant Sciences 18(5): 637-652

A critical review is made of studies on allelopathy in semi-natural (as opposed to plantation monoculture) forests of the northern temperate and boreal regions, concentrating on 4 particular aspects of the allelopathic interactions involved - the role of soil microorganisms, the role of tree mycorrhizal symbionts, the implications of allelopathy for natural regeneration, and applied silvicultural aspects (with reference to the reduction of the adverse impact of allelopathic interactions, and the use of allelopathy as a tool for forest management). Suggestions are made for improving the study of allelopathy in forest ecosystems and prospects for future investigations are outlined.
