Colonisation of clearfelled coupes by rainforest tree species from mature mixed forest edges, Tasmania, Australia

Tabor, John; Hickey, J; Wood, Jeffrey; McElhinny, Chris


Mixed forest, containing a eucalypt overstorey and an understorey of rainforest tree species, accounts for approximately 20% (195,000 ha) of Tasmania's wet eucalypt forest. In wood production areas it is typically clearfelled, burnt and then sown with eucalypt seed. This management removes virtually all standing seed sources within the coupe, so that recolonisation of coupes by rainforest tree species depends largely on seed sources located at the coupe edges. We quantified the influence of...[Show more]
