Effect of species and ecological conditions on ellagitannin content in oak wood from an even-aged and mixed stand of Quercus robur L. and Quercus petraea Liebl. Andrei Prida, Jean-Claude Boulet, Alexis Ducousso, Gérard Nepveu, Jean-Louis Puech To cite this version. Effects of forest management and soil acidity on herb layer vegetation were studied after 10 years on permanent plots in south Swedish beech (Fagus sylvatica) and oak (Quercus robur) forests. We studied the effect of Pinus pinaster clearcutting on nutrient dynamics and availability for the late-successional species Quercus robur that dominates the understory of the pine canopy. Variations in leaf nutrient content (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and sodium) expressed on a leaf mass and area basis, were studied during a growing Cited by:
