Cytisus scoparius (L.) is a common native species of the Chaîne des Puys, a mid-elevation volcanic mountain range of the French Massif Central. Widely used in the former traditional agricultural system, broom has now become an invasive species colonising open areas after grazing abandonment. This study quantifies variation in size as a function of age and local competition at both stand and individual level. Eleven monospecific stands free of grazing were sampled according to an age gradient… CONTINUE READING
