Abstract

Floristic diversity was studied in 7- to 8-year-old commercial hybrid aspen (Populus tremula × Populus tremuloides) plantations on abandoned agricultural sites with a different land use (grassland or crop field) and site preparation (whole-area ploughing or strip tillage) history in Estonia. The...
