Deer Browse - Summer Woody - Thousand Islands
Browse surveys occur yearly in July-August and are conducted by park staff. Each plot is composed of nine circular subplots (2-m radius) in a 3 x 3 grid, spaced at 15 m intervals. The number of seedlings (5 – 30 cm) and saplings (30 – 200 cm) of each tree species are counted. Seedling recruitment is correlated with herbivore abundance and provides an efficient method to assess browse pressure in forest ecosystems.
