The artificial regeneration of oaks (Quercus spp.) can supplement deficient natural regeneration, yet growth and physiology of newly planted seedlings are often negatively affected by animal herbivory. Alternative nursery stock types with improved stress resistance may help improve regeneration success. 1-year-old bare-root (1+0) and container (164 mL) northern red oak (Quercus rubra L.) seedlings were transplanted into pots, subjected to two simulated browsing treatments (dormant or summer) or… CONTINUE READING
