The evergreen dwarf shrub lingonberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea L.) was subjected to microtine herbivory simulations to investigate its recovery in a boreal forest. Beside the control (A), the study included three levels of herbivory: clipping of half the annual branches from 50% of ramets (B), removal of 50% of ramets (C), and removal of 100% of ramets (D). Density, growth, and fecundity of the ramets were monitored during the study. New ramets emerged rapidly from dormant basal buds at the base… CONTINUE READING
