Invasion by Pittosporum undulatum of the forests of central Victoria. I. Invasion patterns and plant morphology.
TLDR
The dense canopy dramatically reduces the light intensity and completely suppresses the original sclerophyllous understorey: only Gahnia radula remains and bioassays indicate that inhibitors may be present. Expand
NOTHOFAGUS STAND DEVELOPMENT ON IN-TRANSIT MORAINES, CASA PANGUE GLACIER, CHILE
Vegetation development was examined on in-transit morainic arcs (i.e., supraglacial debris) and on recessional and lateral moraines at Casa Pangue Glacier in Chile. Data were collected on floristicExpand
Catastrophic influences on the vegetation of the Valdivian Andes, Chile
In association with a devastating earthquake in 1960, thousands of debris avalanches, landslides, and mudflows occurred in the Andes of south-central Chile. Catastrophic mass movements associatedExpand
Seed harvesting by ants in forests of Eucalyptus regnans F. Muell. in central Victoria
TLDR
It is suggested that the success of germination of E. regnans after wild fires is not due to any specific stimulation but rather to a temporary interference of ant foraging activity and then to the saturation of their food requirements by a massive seed fall from canopy-stored capsules. Expand
The Big Ash forest, Wallaby Creek, Victoria— changes during one lifetime
TLDR
The type A understorey is now showing signs of changing to Olearia argophylla dominance and the cover of ground fern and tree fern strata has doubled to more than 80% over this period in spite of damage caused by infrequent, but severe, droughts. Expand
The Dynamics of Callitris columellaris/Eucalyptus albens Communities Along the Snowy River and Its Tributaries in South-Eastern Australia
The vegetation in the rain shadow areas of the Snowy River region was studied. Five distinct woodland communities were recognised from a numerical classification, a community dominated by C.Expand
Phosphorus in Forest Ecosystems at Beenak, Victoria
TLDR
The principal aim of the study was to provide students with a demonstration of the variation of phosphorus content between different communities in a wet climate in Victoria and the senior ecology classes from 1963-9 contributed to much of the infromation obtained. Expand
Distribution and dominance of species in the understorey of a mixed evergreen-deciduous Nothofagus forest in south-central Chile.
TLDR
In the successional trend from mixed Nothofagus forest towards evergreen forest, C. tenuiflora would be expected to increase in size and abundance, and to play an increasingly controlling role in the process of forest regeneration. Expand
