Description

Intensive research in several parts of Pennsylvania has demonstrated that dense herbaceous cover can inhibit the development of advance regeneration, and that advance regeneration often is lacking in Pennsylvania forests. The lack of quantitative statewide information on forest understory prompted a study to characterize advance regeneration and fern inhibition for Pennsylvania's forests.
