The article presents a paper that deals with a model of blue oak regeneration. It aims to integrate modern experimental data with a century's worth of ecological observations to build a conceptual model of blue oak regeneration. The model was used by the authors to develop explanations for both current and past generation patterns and points toward strategies for sustainable management of blue oak woodlands.

    Quercus robur L. (pedunculate oak) and Quercus petraea (Matt.) Liebl. (sessile oak) are two European oak species of great economic and ecological importance. Even though both oaks have wide ecological amplitudes of suitable growing conditions, forests dominated by oaks often fail to regenerate...

    Oak ( Quercus spp.) regeneration is an important forest management goal in the central hardwood forest region of the United States. Silvicultural methods that target oak regeneration, such as the creation of canopy openings and removal of shade-tolerant midstory trees, are complicated by the...

    California's hardwood rangelands, an oak-dominated woodland system, cover 10 million acres. More than 80% of these lands are privately owned, with two-thirds grazed by domestic livestock. Public concerns about long-term damage to habitat in areas harvested for firewood - particularly in the...
