Summary
Abstract: HFR006:
Trees will be pulled down to simulate hurricane damage in two
mixed hardwood plots: (1) 0.35 ha, September 1989; (2) 0.6 ha, September 1990.
In the first plot, the extent of damage, changes in microtopography, and
vegetation regeneration will be measured. In the second plot, vegetation will
be measured and mapped before the pulldown. After the pulldown, selected areas
will be treated with ... View entire text
