Reducing Conifer Seed Predation by Use of Alternative Foods
Abstract:By suppyling alternative foods, damage to seed by rodents and birds was greatly reduced in seeding trials with Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) and lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) in British Columbia, Canada. Although the trials did not demonstrate that a stand of seedlings will actually be obtained, the technique appears to warrant further study as a way to improve the reliability of direct seeding.
