Impacts of tree diversity and drought on forest resilience to pathogens

Abstract:

The area of planted forest around the globe is increasing. Most new plantations are planted as monocultures, but evidence shows that mixed species forests can provide higher levels of multiple ecosystem functions without compromising productivity. In addition, mixed species forests are often purported to be more resilient to natural disturbances such as pest and pathogen outbreaks. In European forests, widespread species such as oak (Quercus robur) are currently under threat from multiple ...
