Sažetak
Background and Purpose: Since the last decade, the amount and periodicity of European beech seed crops in Croatia have been disrupted, and thus the regeneration of its forests has become increasingly questionable. The aim of this study was to determine: (1) seed yield variations within and among four European beech populations and its relation with tree crowns projection, (2) variation in seed morphometric traits of the studied populations, and (3) various methods of seed yield estimates. Materials and Methods: Research was carried out in four populations of registered European beech seed stands. Experimental plots 80×60 m in size were established in 2016. Horizontal crown projections were calculated for 25 dominant beech trees at each plot. Seed yield per tree was estimated based on seed traps, and by visual scoring of seeding intensity. On a sample of twenty trees (five trees per population) total seed crops were collected by large nets covering their whole crown projections. Different methods of seed yield estimates were compared. The amount of seed yield per population (number of beechnuts per ha) was estimated as well. The length, width and mass of beechnuts were measured. Data were analysed to establish differences within and between populations. Relationships between seed yield and horizontal crown projection, as well as among seed morphometric traits were analysed. Results and Conclusions: The seed trap method overestimated yields when compared with the real yields caught in the large nets. When crown projections were decreased by 25% the seed trap estimation method was improved. A positive correlation between visual scores of seeding intensity and seed yield estimates proved highly unreliable and therefore inaccurate. The results showed high variability of seed yields within and between the populations. The average yields per population varied from 2.4 to 5.9 million seeds·ha−1. A positive and significant correlation between seed yields and crown horizontal projections was shown (R2=0.6285), indicating that stand density is an important factor for seed production. A positive and statistically significant correlation between beechnut mass and width was obtained (R2=0.5875).
