Effect of enhancement of willow (Salix spp.) on establishment of birch (Betula pubescens) on eroded soils in Iceland

Effect of enhancement of willow (Salix spp.) on establishment of birch (Betula pubescens) on eroded soils in Iceland

Nordic mountain birch ecosystems: 317-329

A study was conducted in Iceland to determine the growth response of birch (Betula pubescens) in relation to increased shelter, increased nutrients and mycorrhizal infection of birch seedlings close to willows (Salix). The increased growth of birch seedlings near the willow plants found in the present study shows that the seedlings clearly benefit from the presence of the willows.
