Introduction: Ecology and silviculture of temperate mixedwood forests

Mixed-species forests are, or were, a common feature of most forested regions around the globe (Bauhus et al. 2017b). The ecology and silviculture of these systems has been a consistent area of study given the potential benefits of mixed-species forests in relation to minimizing forest health and climate change impacts (Bauhus et al. 2017a) and the occasional higher levels of productivity observed...

Climate and species stress resistance modulate the higher survival of large seedlings in forest restorations worldwide

Seedling planting plays a key role in active forest restoration and regeneration of managed stands. Plant attributes at outplanting can determine tree seedling survival and consequently early success of forest plantations. Although many studies show that large seedlings of the same age within a species have higher survival than small ones, others report the opposite. This may be due to differences...
