Seed germination of Pinus sylvestris L. in south eastern Spain was studied under field and growth chamber conditions to assess the effect of the most representative microhabitats of these forests. Under growth chamber conditions, germination was high (almost 95%) in the litter from all microhabitats. Germination under field conditions was highest (up to 95%) in shade-free microhabitats and therefore higher soil temperature (e.g. areas of bare soil and meadows), and lowest (down to 62%) in… CONTINUE READING
