- ... Longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) forests are historically and ecologically important and also endangered ecosystems in the southeastern United States. In addition to extensive exploitation and land use conversion, one characteristic which contributed to their dramatic decline and presents a continuing challenge to their future recovery is the sporadic timing of their seed production.

- ... Global change threatens the persistence of native forest ecosystems mainly by limiting the conditions for natural regeneration but also inducing tree mortality and increasing the risk of large wildfires. In this context, understanding the biotic and biotic factors that ultimately determine tree recruitment is of pivotal importance to implement adaptive forest management strategies. In this study w ...
