Allelopathy is the interference of one plant with another through substances produced by the plant and released into the environment. A rapidly growing body of data suggests that allelopathy is often important in the survival and growth of trees in both plantations and natural stands. An awareness of this phenomenon, and its potential effects on regeneration and site productivity, is essential in the practice of intensive silviculture.
