Effects of shade on growth and mortality of maple (Acer pseudoplatanus), ash (Fraxinus excelsior) and beech (Fagus sylvatica) saplings
Summary We compared shade tolerance of maple, ash and beech in the sapling stage from two sites with rich soils differing in water supply, growing in dense thickets underneath a beech shelterwood ofExpand

Influence of light availability on growth, leaf morphology and plant architecture of beech (Fagus sylvatica L.), maple (Acer pseudoplatanus L.) and ash (Fraxinus excelsior L.) saplings
In a field study, we measured saplings of beech, ash and maple growing in a fairly even-aged mixed-species thicket established by natural regeneration beneath a patchy shelterwood canopy with 3–60%Expand

Structure and diversity of a natural temperate sessile oak (Quercus petraea L.) – European Beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) forest
Abstract The paper details an investigation of the stand structure and patterns of diversity observed in the Runcu-Grosi Natural Reserve (western Romania), one of the best preserved natural mixedExpand

Gap disturbance patterns in an old-growth sessile oak (Quercus petraea L.)–European beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) forest remnant in the Carpathian Mountains, Romania
Abstract In recent decades, natural forest remnants have become increasingly important as reference objects for maintaining or restoring old-growth characteristics in managed forests. Canopy gapsExpand

Overstory succession in a mixed Quercus petraea-Fagus sylvatica old growth forest revealed through the spatial pattern of competition and mortality
Abstract Old-growth forests are often looked at as a reference for naturalness. Analyzing their successional pathways can provide valuable information on the main drivers of succession in the absenceExpand

Effects of root trenching of overstorey Norway spruce (Piceaabies) on growth and biomass of underplanted beech (Fagussylvatica) and Douglas fir (Pseudotsugamenziesii) saplings
In Central Europe, the conversion of pure Norway spruce stands (Picea abies [L.] Karst.) into mixed stands with beech (Fagus silvatica L.) and other species like e.g. Douglas fir (PseudotsugaExpand

Structural patterns of beech and silver fir suggest stability and resilience of the virgin forest Sinca in the Southern Carpathians, Romania
Abstract The structural patterns and dynamics of a primeval silver fir ( Abies alba ) – European beech ( Fagus sylvatica ) forest in the Southern Carpathians (Romania) were assessed to gain deeperExpand

High frequency of positive interspecific interactions revealed by individual species–area relationships for tree species in a tropical evergreen forest
ABSTRACT Background: The spatial structure of tree species diversity may identify the relative importance of positive, negative and neutral interactions among species and the processes that maintainExpand

Fine roots of overstory Norway spruce (Picea abies): distribution and influence on growth of underplanted beech (Fagus sylvatica) and Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) saplings
The horizontal and vertical distribution of live fine roots (diameter < 2 mm) of overstory Norway spruce [Picea abies (L.) Karst.] and their influence on diameter and height growth of underplantedExpand
