Table 4 Effects of within-gap position and tree species on the sprout density, growth, and survival of 1-year-old and 2-year-old sprouts

From: The effects of stump size and within-gap position on sprout non-structural carbohydrates concentrations and regeneration in forest gaps vary among species with different shade tolerances
