    Description

    Ecosystem-oriented management is being used on southern National Forests to conserve biodiversity, improve the balance among forest values, and achieve sustainable conditions. This paper reports on the regeneration phase of a study to identify the implications of ecosystem management practices on loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) and shortleaf (I? echinata Mill) pine stands in the Piedmont. Naturally regenerated stands are likely to have less diverse seedling populations 1 year after harvest than preharvest and will be comprised of more hardwoods-especially sweetgum-- than the original overstory stands.
