[2013] Height competition between Quercus petraea and Fagus sylvatica natural regeneration in mixed and uneven-aged stands, Forest Ecology and Management 304, 391-398

We monitored in situ natural regeneration in 23 uneven-aged stands. We modelled height growth in the regeneration of Quercus petraea and Fagus sylvatica. Beech saplings grew faster than oak saplings at all light levels. Oak gained greater benefit from direct radiation than did beech. Canopy opening is insufficient to promote oak over beech regeneration.
