Variations in tree growth provide limited evidence of species mixture effects in Interior West U.S.A. mixed-conifer forests

Christopher Looney, Wilfred Previant & Linda Nagel
1. In mixed stands, species complementarity (e.g., facilitation and competition reduction) may enhance forest tree productivity. Although positive mixture effects have been identified in forests worldwide, the majority of studies have focused on two-species interactions in managed systems with high functional diversity. We extended this line of research to examine mixture effects on tree productivity across landscape-scale compositional and environmental gradients in the low functional diversity, fire-suppressed, mixed-conifer forests of the U.S. Interior West. 2....
