Factors affecting survival of tree seedlings in North Queensland rainforests

  title={Factors affecting survival of tree seedlings in North Queensland rainforests},
  author={Olusegun O. Osunkjoya and Julian E. Ash and Mike S. Hopkins and Andrew W. Graham},
Seedlings of six species of rainforest trees with widely constrasting ecology and seed morphology were transplanted at 3 weeks of age into tree-fall gaps and the shaded understoreys at two rainforest sites (Curtain Fig and Lamins Hill) on the Atherton Tableland, North Queensland, Australia. In each forest habitat, half of the transplanted seedlings were protected from vertebrates by means of wire cages, and survival was monitored over 16 months. The main objective was to estimate the extent to… CONTINUE READING
