Juveniles and adults of four co-occurring tree species were mapped to study inter- and intra-specific interactions. Results suggest that positive interactions do not increase in importance with increasing aridity in the study system, being regeneration patterns species-specific and dependent on microhabitat characteristics, water availability and dispersal strategies. This work contributes to the understanding of species co-existence in continental Mediterranean ecosystems.
