Many studies suggest a causal link between development can lead to AB understory dominance. the two phenomena, i.e., BBD favouring beech This distinction—BBD not necessarily triggering AB regeneration. But this link has yet to be experimentally root sucker establishment but favoring AB advance demonstrated. To address the question, we compared regeneration development—also questions the gener- regeneration composition between recently BBD- alized perception that dense AB thickets necessarily affected and -unaffected stands.
