  1. Direct seeding of 16 Brazilian savanna trees: responses to seed burial, mulching and an invasive grass

    Raíssa R.P. Silva and Daniel L.M. Vieira

    Direct seeding is an effective technique to plant numerous kinds of Cerrado tree species for restoration. Overall germination was 43% and overall survival was 69%, resulting in a success of 30% after 1 yr. Emergence is increased when soil is well prepared and there are mechanisms to control invasive species.

  2. Revising Ellenberg's indicator values for continentality based on global vascular plant species distribution

    Version of Record online: 23 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1111/avsc.12306

    New indicator values for continentality (C-values) and amplitudes for 2984 taxa of Central European vascular plants are presented. Species’ distribution information is abstracted to standardized range formulas that combine data on occurrence across floristic zones, altitudinal preferences, and the distribution within the oceanity-continentality gradient. The C-values were derived therefrom using simple algorithms. The main improvement is the application of a comprehensible assessment protocol.

    Recruitment of riparian plants after restoration of geomorphic complexity in northern Sweden

    Erik R. Herberg and Judith M. Sarneel

    Version of Record online: 23 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1111/avsc.12304

    Many restoration projects increase the geomorphic complexity of boreal streams, yet riparian vegetation changes are often not observed. We found that recruitment of experimentally sown seeds of six species negatively correlated with geomorphic complexity while the number of naturally present seedlings did not correlate, suggesting the presence of dispersal limitations. However, recruitment was not affected by the degree of restoration.
