Evergreen understory dynamics in Coweeta forest, North Carolina

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The AA. examine 2 adjacent, physically similar basins with differing degrees of experimental manipulation in the 20th century in an attempt to examine the role of environmental and historical factors in determining spatial patterns of persistence , expansion, and decline of the evergreen understory. Results indicate that significant expansion of the evergreen-understory occurred in both basins during the period 1976-1993, and that stream proximity, topographic setting, and elevation are related to patterns of evergreen-understory dynamics. Patterns differ between the 2 basins, suggesting that disturbance and differing land-use histories are also influential
