Canopy openings in boreal spruce stands can favor the expansion of Sphagnum spp. in the un- Ground cover derstory at the expense of feather mosses. We use an experimental approach in both paludiﬁed ﬁeld and Picea mariana greenhouse fully-randomized conditions to examine the diﬀerential eﬀects of these two ground cover types on Pleurozium schreberii black spruce germination and growth, speciﬁcally the role of nutrient limitation in generating these eﬀects. We Spruce regeneration also tested the impact of ground cover shading, simulating the eﬀect of a closed forest canopy on the ground
