Abstract

Examined the role of management on the current lack of Quercus douglasii recruitment on California foothill rangelands. Diameter at breast height accounted for 42-71% of the variation in tree age at 2 sites. Actual age structures were significantly different than age structures predicted from all regression equations at both sites. Use of age structures to infer the role of management on blue oak population dynamics requires direct age measurement. -from Authors
