DescriptionThe most rapid progress in forest-tree improvement will be attained through artificial reforestation with superior genotypes. These trees may be native species, exotics, or hybrid combinations involving several species of diverse origins. Any tree planting creates an artificial situation, which is made even more artificial by the introduction of non-native types. In such situations, pests of various sorts-including certain mammals-maybe much more destructive than elsewhere. One of the most neglected fields of inquiry bearing on plantation success concerns the role of mammals, especially rodents.
