Periphery-to-core patterns of distribution were detected over much larger ranges (>750 m) than previously recognised for common understory plant species in 1801 forest patches of Northern France. Plant traits differentiated forest-core from forest-periphery species. This deep gradient could be due to the long-term persistence of land-use history and edge displacement following general reforestation since 1830.
