Abstract

Shrub encroachment is a global phenomenon occurring in a wide range of ecosystems, including in tree plantations, which is known to affect ecosystem functioning and productivity. Forest management in tree plantations (e.g. shrub clearing, tree thinning and pruning) often aims to increase wood and...

Abstract

In Mediterranean forests, anthropogenic disturbances received little interest in regards to their shrub layer induced enlargement. We studied in the cork oak forest of Beni Métir and in undisturbed and disturbed sites, the relative contribution of the tree (LT, DLT) and shrub (LS, DLS) layers to...
