Competition for water between beech seedlings and surrounding vegetation in different light and vegetation composition conditions



Competition for water between beech seedlings and surrounding vegetation in different light and vegetation composition conditions



Annals of Forest Science 60(7): 593-600



To gain a better understanding of beech (Fagus sylvatica) growth requirements and assess the competition with the surrounding vegetation at two successional stages after agricultural land abandonment, we introduced two-year-old beech seedlings: (i) in a recently abandoned meadow (one half weeded); and (ii) in an old meadow colonized by 25-year-old natural Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris), with one part thinned to increase light availability at ground level.
