Description

In this study, we investigated the effects of commercial thinning and fertiliser application 6 years after treatment on the structure, composition, and nutrient concentrations of understorey vegetation in a Eucalyptus sieberi regrowth forest in East Gippsland. The stand was thinned at age 26 years, reducing the basal area by ca. 50% and lowering the stocking from ca. 1350 to ca. 250 stems ha-1. Whereas the species diversity and richness of the understorey were not significantly affected by the...[Show more]
