Seed and cone diversity and seed germination of Pinus pinea in Strofylia Site of the Natura 2000 Network

  title={Seed and cone diversity and seed germination of Pinus pinea in Strofylia Site of the Natura 2000 Network},
  author={Petros Ganatsas and Marianthi Tsakaldimi and Costas A. Thanos},
  journal={Biodiversity and Conservation},
Variation in cone size, seed number per cone, seed potential, seed efficiency, seed morphology and seed germination behavior of Pinus pinea and its relation to stand conditions was analyzed. Data were collected from P. pinea forest in Strofylia, southern Greece, a forest that belongs to the Natura 2000 European network and the RAMSAR convention and is characterized by the absence of regeneration for many decades. The pine stands found in the area were distinguished into five categories… CONTINUE READING
