Canopy accession strategies and climate responses for three Carya species common in the Eastern Deciduous Forest

Abstract

Maintenance of Carya in successional stands will require canopy disturbances larger than the gap-scale to increase understory light in conjunction with reduction in competition from shade-tolerant mesophytes. A widespread compositional shift has been reported in Quercus–Carya forests throughout the eastern USA. Quercus and Carya are failing to regenerate… (More)
