Abstract

Vegetation was studied in a 16-ha relict forest on the slopes of Monte Amiata in Tuscany, central Italy, a mesophile forest community dominated by silver fir (Abies alba) at higher altitudes, whereas further down silver fir is associated with broadleaves (Fagus sylvatica, Tilia platyphyllos,...
