Abstract

(1) Jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) and trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) seedlings were grown in replacement series (100, 75. 25, 50 : 50, 25 : 75, 100) at variable densities (17 to 10 000 plants m-2) for 12 weeks in a greenhouse experiment and for 3 years in a field test. (2) Analyses of survival, height, weight, form, resource allocation, relative yields and relative crowding coefficients indicated that aspen dominated in all mixtures and densities except 10 000 plants m-2
