Abstract Understanding the composition and dynamics of soil seedbanks beneath mature conifer plantations is important for managing biodiversity in rotational forestry systems and in the restoration of former communities following the removal of tree crops. We examined the role of the buried seedbank in vegetation development after clear-felling of stands within coniferous plantation forest in eastern England. The buried seedbank of 29 mature stands planted in the early to mid 20th century on… CONTINUE READING
