Despite increased focus on climate-related forest dieoff, studies of the effects on regeneration processes following extreme drought remain scarce. Drought-induced canopy losses in a Pinus sylvestris L. forest appear not to be compensated by its own regeneration. In contrast, enhanced growth responses of a pre-established seedling bank of Quercus spp. could still contribute to accelerate forest dynamics under drier conditions.
