The interaction between growth, daylight intensity and genetic characters has been analyzed in an even aged 18-year-old natural beech regeneration, under various daylight intensities. The growth and shape of young plants has been analyzed from the main stem. The annual and multiannual growth displayed 3 periods: establishment, differentiation and regression or stabilization.
