    Larger seeds generally produce larger seedlings either at intra- or at interspecific level; however, whether large seeds contribute more to seedlings than do small ones is largely unknown. We investigated fresh masses of acorns, seedling size, mobilization of cotyledonary reserves of nine red...

    The exotic shrub Lonicera tatarica (Tartarian honeysuckle) has aggressively invaded woodlands and forests in central and eastern North America; however, its impacts on native plant species are not well understood. We used a greenhouse seedling experiment to examine the effects of L. tatarica on...

    The article reports on the successful storage of swamp white oaks also known as Fagaceae for the span of one year in Missouri. The acorns of white oaks quickly deteriorate on storage, requiring prompt planting in the nursery. The storage underwent soaking to keep the moisture at least 45 percent...

    Frequency-dependent selection is theoretically predicted to have an important impact on predator–prey dynamics, but little is understood about this process in nature. We investigated oak–squirrel interactions to test the hypothesis that tree squirrels predate/disperse white oak...
