The impact of browsing animals on the stand dynamics of monotypic mountain beech (Nothofagus solandri) forests in Canterbury, New Zealand


, : The impact of browsing animals on the stand dynamics of monotypic mountain beech (Nothofagus solandri) forests in Canterbury, New Zealand. Australian Journal of Botany 42(2): 113-124

Mountain beech is frequently the sole canopy species in the montane forests of Canterbury, New Zealand, and often the only significant tree or shrub present over large areas; this allows examination of a very simple ecosystem. Data from remeasurement of over 400 permanent quadrats in six areas (original measurement dates 1965-1978, and remeasurement dates 1973-87) were examined to elucidate the impact of browsing animals (mainly red deer, Cervus elaphus) on natural processes.
