Holt Research Forest From 1983-1990 we assessed annual litter and seed fall using litter traps with 0.5m2 openings (n = 40, collections bimonthly). Since 1988 we have used 0.042m2 traps (n = 264 traps, collections once per year in May before red maple seed fall. Litter collection was dropped because the volume was too great to effectively sort and measure. Seed collection was maintained because seed production relates well to tree recruitment and small mammal abundance.
Provide estimates of annual seed production by each tree species.
