Abstract

Investigates the effects of two log harvesting systems on the vegetation of floodplains. Removal of logs via helicopters resulted in greater woody plant density compared to logging by conventional skidder harvest systems. Survival of Cyrilla racemiflora and Cliftonia monophylla was lower in the skidder plots than the helicopter plots. These results provide an indication of the level of disturbance from which these two species can rebound.
