Howard S. Neufeld and Donald R. Young Light availability is the primary limiting
resource for understory plants of eastern deciduous forests, and their long-term
persistence in these habitats depends on adapta- tions that enable
photosynthesis sufficient to maintain a positive annual carbon bal- ance (
Goryshina 1972; Pearcy et al. 1987). However, in addition to low light, understory
plants may also be limited by water stress (Masarovičová and Eliáš 1986),
nutrient defi- ciencies ...

METHODS One area on Laguna Mountain was selected to determine the
incidence of dwarf mistletoe in understory trees. The site selected was
considered representative of many stands on the mountain and contained
several heavily infected overstory Jeffrey pine and an abundance of understory
seedlings. Moreover, Laguna Mountain is representative of many high value,
high use recreational forests that are badly infested by western dwarf mistletoe in
southern California.

In silvopastoral systems, the forest understory is manipulated to meet forage
needs for livestock and are typically less diverse than the natural forest
understory or natural ecosystem. To maximize the benefits to wildlife, the needs
of the wildlife species desired must also be considered when designing the
system. V Wildlife allocation of resources: The amount and type of understory
needed for wildlife must be determined. These resources should be protected for
use by the wildlife ...

In these forests this family may comprise up to 80 percent of the canopy trees and
40 percent of those in the understory, whereas in africa there is only a handful of
tree species that belong to this family, and in South america perhaps just one.14
the dipterocarpaceae family contains tree species that typically have straight
trunks, grow to a very large size, and can usually be converted into valuable
timber. Because of their generally large size and uniformly straight trunks, they
are a ...

2001), persisting as small understory individuals (Ellsworth et al. 2004) until light
openings appear and stunted lianas bolt into the canopy (Leicht & Silander 2006)
. The sit and wait strategy, plus the fast potential growth rates and plastic nature
of lianas, necessitate the study of both canopy and understory individuals. As tree
composition changes through forest regeneration, the effects of lianas on trees
also change. Lianas can recruit early in forest regeneration and influence the ...
