Compaction caused by some intensive forest management practices can reduce tree growth, but growth reduction is the result of complex interactions between soil properties and tree physiological processes, which may differ by species. We used a 7 by 7 factorial greenhouse experiment to create a matrix of bulk density (ρ b ) and volumetric water content (θ v ) to better understand soil compaction effects on seedling growth of: (i) ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa var. ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws… Expand
