Bernard Prévosto, Yogan Monnier, Christian Ripert and Catherine Fernandez To what extent do time, species identity and selected plant response variables influence woody plant interactions? Journal of Applied Ecology 49
We show that the outcome of plant interactions is species specific and varies with time and the indicator selected. Facilitation was detected with tree neighbour treatment, but over time interactions clearly shifted to competition. Hence, forest planting operations can benefit from the interactions induced by neighbouring woody vegetation provided that neighbour species are carefully selected and active post-planting management is performed.
