Fire affects soil organic matter and the emergence of Pinus radiata seedlings

These results demonstrate the regeneration capacity of Pinus radiata in forest ecosystems, which is essential to minimise  long-term fire impact of fire. Abstract This study integrates thermal analysis of soil with tests of fire effects on Pinus

Deer browsing and forest understorey changes

Key message Thanks to the concomitant recordings of vegetation and deer browsing sampled first in 1976, then resurveyed in 2006, we show that forest plant communities shifted in response to deer population dynamics, stand management and eutrophication.
