AbstractResearches the availability of bird perches in wet pine savannas on the establishment of woody shrubs. Seeds of woody shrubs were greater at the base of Pinus elliottii trees and near artificial perches than in open areas. Reducing tree density with controlled growing-season burns will reduce woody shrub density, keeping savannas open and increasing diversity of herbaceous species.
