Initial oak regeneration responses to experimental warming along microclimatic and macroclimatic gradients
Quercus spp. are one of the most important tree genera in temperate deciduous forests in terms of biodiversity, economic and cultural perspectives.
However, natural regeneration of oaks, depending on specific environmental conditions, is still not sufficiently understood.
Oak regeneration dynamics are impacted by climate change, but these climate impacts will depend on local forest management and light and temperature conditions.
