Competitive Relationships in Forest Restoration: Impact of Cover Crops and Fertilization on Tree and Understory DevelopmentDownload
Initial reclamation practices affect the early development and future recovery trajectories of tree and understory species on reclamation sites. In this thesis I explored the effects of yellow sweet clover (Melilotus officinalis) as a cover crop on tree performance and competition control in...
Legacy propagule banks of salvaged topsoils are excellent sources of plant propagules for reclamation of mine sites. However, prior studies show that less than 50% of species found in original propagule banks actually establish. We hypothesize that the expression of this legacy propagule bank is...
