The dehesa and montado agroecosystems seem to be water-stress induced structures and some authors have found evidence of a relationship between stand tree density and mean annual precipitation. In order to assess the ecophysiological responses of Quercus suber to increasing tree density and to evaluate if there was evidence of an “optimum tree density” with respect to mean annual rainfall in our study area, we established a tree-density gradient of 20, 40, and 60 trees ha−1, coded D20, D40, and… CONTINUE READING
