Association of vines and trees in second-growth forest
Buron J; Lavigne D; Grote K; Takis R; Sholes O
In a fragment of second-growth forest in Massachusetts woody vines (mostly Rhus radicans) grew on 45% of the trees and were disproportionately abundant on large trees and on trees near the edge of the fragment. Among hickories Carya ovata a species known for its unique \"shaggy\" bark hosted more vines than C. glabra.
