Stages and spatial scales of recruitment limitation in Southern Appalachian forests. [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Recruitment limitation of tree population dynamics is poorly understood, because fecundity and dispersal are difficult to characterize in closed stands. We present an approach that estimates seed production and dispersal under closed canopies and four limitations on recruitment: tree density and location, fencundity, seed dispersal, and establishment. Consistent estimates are obtained for 14 canopy species using 5 yr. of census data from 100 seed traps and several thousand mapped trees and seedlings from five southern Appalachian forest stands that span gradients in elevation and moisture. Fecundity ranged over four orders of magnitude, from 10
