INVESTIGACIÓN PRELIMINAR DE LA DEPREDACIÓN DE SEMILLAS EN LA GERMINACIÓN DE LAS BELLOTAS DE Quercus candicans Née
The acorns of oaks (Quercus spp.) are attacked in the pre-dispersal stage by various insect species. Despite the importance of the oaks in reforestation prog...
outplanted as seeds and as container stock under different irrigation regimes VALLEY OAK SEEDLINGS
Direct seeding of valley oak (Quercus lobata Nee [Fagaceae]), commonly used in restoration in the Central Valley of California, may be preferable to using container stock, at least in nonirrigatedExpand
A preliminary investigation of the effect of pre-dispersal seed predation on the germination of Quercus candicans Née acorns.
TLDR
The analysis of the results suggests the need to develop control methods of the insects, and to separate the infested acorns to improve the quality of the production of seedlings destined. Expand
DEPREDACIÓN DE LAS SEMILLAS DE Sapindus saponaria L. POR Leptostylus gibbulosus Bates (COLEOPTERA: CERAMBYCIDAE) Y SU EFECTO EN LA GERMINACIÓN
TLDR
Results show that L. gibbulosus affected 25 % of seed under study and considerably reduced germination and reproductive fitness of predated seeds, principally in large seeds. Expand
Effects of Prescribed Fires on Young Valley Oak Trees at a Research Restoration Site in the Central Valley of California
Woodland restoration sites planted with Quercus lobata (valley oak) often have serious invasions of nonnative annual grasses and thistles. Although prescribed fire can effectively control theseExpand
California oaks and fire: a reviewand case study
California has a fire-prone Mediterranean climate, and many of its nine species of native oak trees are thought to have evolved with fire. Little has been widely published about the role of fire inExpand
California Oaks and Fire : A Review and Case Study 1
California has a fire-prone Mediterranean climate, and many of its nine species of native oak trees are thought to have evolved with fire. Little has been widely published about the role of fire inExpand
DO SMALL-SEEDED SPECIES HAVE HIGHER SURVIVAL THROUGH SEED PREDATION THAN LARGE-SEEDED SPECIES?
TLDR
There was no significant relationship between seed mass and survivorship through predispersal seed predation either cross-species or across phylogenetic divergences in any of the vegetation types, or in the compilation of data from the literature. Expand
The ecology of restoration: historical links, emerging issues and unexplored realms
TLDR
Ecology may inform current restoration practice, but there is considerable room for greater integration between academic scientists and restoration practitioners, especially on the effects of contingency. Expand

Effects of herbivory and herb interference on oak establishment in a semi‐arid temperate savanna
TLDR
Control-environment experiments indicated that Quercus seedlings are tolerant of frequent clipping, but undipped seedlings produce more biomass than clipped seedlings, and seedlings were much less tolerant of clipping or defoliation in the field than in the growth chamber. Expand

While sizing of acorns into several categories may result in more uniform germination within a seedbed, it will not result in uniform seedling development even when using sibling seedlots and acorns of unif... Expand
Oak seedling establishment on California rangelands.
TLDR
Limited data suggest the difference in survival remains consistent over time as overall survival declines, and with few exceptions, the addition of screen protection discouraged predation and significantly enhanced survival and growth. Expand
Blue Oak Mini-plug Transplants: How They Compare to Standard Bareroot and Container Stock
TLDR
This study examined whether a relatively new stock type called mini-plug transplants would perform better in the field than conventional bareroot and container plants, and found that field performance was similar to other stock types that can currently be produced more economically. Expand
Different responses to shade of evergreen and deciduous oak seedlings and the effect of acorn size
TLDR
Differences demonstrate that the deciduous species is gap-dependent and has the advantage over the evergreen species in forest gaps and clearings. Expand
Ecology of mast-fruiting in three species of North American deciduous oaks.
TLDR
The patterns of acorn production for black oak, red oak, and white oak are not simply responses to weather events but are also a function of prior reproductive events, which suggests that masting is an evolved reproductive strategy. Expand
