Pasture trees contribute to structural heterogeneity and plant distributions in post-agricultural forests decades after canopy closure

Marion Holmes
Questions: Open-grown shade trees retained in pastures are legacies of agricultural history that influence recolonization dynamics and create structural heterogeneity in post-agricultural forests. This work addresses the long-term influence of pasture trees on forest structure and composition. I ask: Do signs of successional nucleation in microhabitat, structure and composition near pasture trees persist decades after canopy closure? If so, does variation primarily reflect seed deposition or environmental facilitation? Location: Southeastern Ohio, USA Methods: Thirteen open-grown...
