Direct and indirect effects of understorey bamboo shape tree regeneration niches in a mixed temperate forest

  title={Direct and indirect effects of understorey bamboo shape tree regeneration niches in a mixed temperate forest},
  author={Fernando D. Caccia and Enrique J. Chaneton and Thomas Kitzberger},
Plant cover plays a major role in shaping the nature of recruitment microsites through direct (resource mediated) and indirect (consumer mediated) interactions. Understorey plants may differentially affect seedling establishment, thus contributing to regeneration-niche separation among canopy tree species. We examined patterns of early tree seedling survival resulting from interactive effects of understorey bamboo (Chusquea culeou) and resident consumers in a mixed temperate Patagonian forest… CONTINUE READING
