Yellow Birch Germination And Seedling Growth
Germination and seedling growth of yellow birch were compared for various types of naturally-occurring seedbeds in germination cabinet and greenhouse conditions. Peak rates of germination were reached earlier on moist H layer humus and decayed hemlock wood seedbeds than on mineral soil seedbeds, but total germination was similar on all. Much more rapid height growth and much greater dry weight increment were obtained on seedbeds of exposed, intact humus over mineral soil profiles than on sandy loam or silty mineral soil or on decayed wood. Drought resistance of established seedlings was greater on humus over mineral soil seedbeds than on any other type tested, presumably because of better root development.
