Outplanting container-grown oak seedlings with undesirable shoot and root characteristics result in poor establishment and reduced field growth. The objective of this study was to determine the influence of container type on both above-and below-ground nursery growth and field performance of one-year old tap-rooted seedlings Quercus ilex L. and Quercus(More)
We explored the different mechanisms developed by naturally regenerated seedlings of Quercus ilex L. (Holm oak) under Mediterranean conditions compared to container-seedlings commonly used in plantations. We examined the differences in root architecture (including topology and morphology) and shoot parameters. The results showed that there are many(More)
This paper deals with the dynamics of postfire regeneration of Pinus brutia Ten. in an artificial forest ecosystem of North Greece, after a fire in 1982. The following issues are studied: the natural development of P. brutia stands 20 years after the fire, the current stand structure, and the influence of thinning treatment on stand population dynamics and(More)
This paper deals with the post-fire regeneration of Pinus halepensis Mill. ecosystems in the Sithonia peninsula in northern Greece. The pre-burning stands consisted of two storeys; the overstorey of the dominant tree species P. halepensis and the understorey of evergreen sclerophyllous shrubs. The wildfire took place in June 1994. Three months after the(More)
This paper examines the results of plantings of the Mediterranean pine species, Pinus halepensis and Pinus pinea, in a degraded Mediterranean kermes oak (Quercus coccifera) shrubland in Northern Greece, which were accomplished in order to mitigate ecosystem degradation. Plant establishment and the vegetation differences between the degraded ecosystem’s(More)
