The role of bryophytes and wild ungulates in forest regeneration (Laura Chevaux phd project)

During the thesis project of Laura Chevaux (Irstea Nogent-sur-Vernisson), new regeneration monitoring and bryophyte surveys will be carried out on the OPTMix system in 2019. Philippe Balandier and Anders Marell supervise the thesis, on the role of bryoflore in the network of forest interactions and the implications for the coexistence of woody species. The objective of these follow-ups is to evaluate the effects of interactions between bryophytes and wild ungulates on forest regeneration in mixed oak-pine forests. The data will also be used to add the bryophyte stratum in the RReShar model (module of the Capsis platform).
