What do European forest managers want to know from scientists about mixed forests?
During the last years, scientists published a large amount of papers and books on the ecology and functioning mixed forests. This has certainly contributed to advance our understanding of how a mixed species forest work,Continue reading
What factors determine whether tree species compete or complement each other?
The growth of the forest depends on a series of variables and their complex net of interactions. When the forest is composed of multiple species (called a “mixture”) its growth also depends on the intra-Continue reading
