9780632031481: The Ecology of Mixed Species Stands of Trees (British Ecological Society Annual Symposium Volume)

Foresters, ecologists and scientists from various disciplines have often claimed that stands or groups of trees of mixed species have advantages over same species planting. This book brings together people from these diverse areas to discuss the advantages, including aspects of timber production, synergism between trees with different life habits, the use of nitrogen fixing species, the diversity of habitats offered to plants and animals, and the balance of factors that may diminish the risk of storm damage, pest outbreaks or other catastrophes The book begins by considering growth, yield and culture of mixed species stands from a forester's viewpoint. Then interactions among tree species are considered, particularly those that affect tree nutrition. Later chapters discuss mixed species stands as habitats for herbaceous flora, birds, mammals and invertebrates. Finally the book highlights the issues and priorities for further research
