Alternatives to reduce herbivore damage in hybrid aspen regenerations (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to find alternatives to fences by comparing the

frequency of damages on different configurations of chemical treated,

mechanically protected and untreated hybrid aspen seedlings, planted on

agricultural land. The study also explored whether anthropogenic disturbance

(proximity to roads and buildings) had any effect on the frequency of seedlings

damages.

The study was conducted as a quantitative study with field measurements over

the course of a year, in two sample plots with hybrid aspen seedlings planted in

May 2016 in Vimmerby kommun, Kalmar län. The field data was compiled into

Excel and compared for differences between treatments and proximity to

anthropogenic disturbance.

The result showed that seedlings closer to anthropogenic disturbance showed a

lower frequency of damage. There was no significant difference between the

mechanical (Taimitassu) and chemical (Arbinol B) seedling protection. The

highest frequency of damages occurred in the summer, peaking in July.

In conclusion, when choosing a place to plant hybrid aspen, there should be

anthropogenic disturbance to minimize the frequency of browsing.
