Effects of tree species richness and composition on moose winter browsing and selectivity

Mammalian herbivores play important role in forest regeneration. Selective browsing by moose and deer on saplings of preferred tree species may have considerable impact on tree species survival and species composition of naturally regenerated stands. On the other hand, in many countries across Europe game production is an important ecosystem service and ability of forests to support sufficient densities of game such as deer, moose and wild boar is of economic importance as well. Therefore, it is important to know how mammalian herbivores select the patches of forest where they feed and how,...
