Description: Conifer seeds were sown in clearcut Abies amabilis/Achlys triphylla and Abies amabilis/Vaccinium membranaceum/Xerophyllum tenax habitat types in the McKenzie River basin in Oregon to determine ratios of seeds to established seedlings. Protection from animal predation and shade from stumps were beneficial, but survival and growth did not differ significantly between habitat types or among humus treatments. Germination in the greenhouse was earlier and more prolonged on soils from the Achlys type.
Keywords: seedling growth, habitat types, seedling survival, germination (seed)
