The Effect of Thinning, Age, and Site on Foliage, Increment, and Loss of Dry Matter
Abstract:Busy foresters are all too prone to accept explanations handed down from early texts without inquiring critically into their validity. Moller, drawing widely upon sound physiologic experiments attempts to set forth herein new and sounder theories on the behavior of forest stands. While his conclusions cannot be applied indiscriminately to species or climates differing widely from those in Denmark, the basic theories nevertheless remain valid. He throws new light on the hehavior of stands following thinning, on the relative efficiency of conifers and hardwoods, and on the physiological differences between shade-tolerant and shade-intolerant species.
