At midelevations the lack of saplings and of relatively small-diameter individuals clearly shows that the shade-intolerant Nothofagus spp. are not regenerating in undisturbed old-growth stands. On the other hand, the population structures and reproductive behaviour of the shade-tolerant Laurelia philippiana and Saxegothaea conspicua… CONTINUE READING
