Abstract

Classical concepts of post-disturbance succession through well-defined sera1 stages to a well-defined climax stage(s) are not ausefulconceptual framework for predicting species composition of regeneration resulting from the application of regeneration treatmentsin complex southern hardwood forests. Hardwood regeneration can be better understood, and more useful prediction models can be developed, using the concepts of initial floristic composition and vital ecological attributes.
