Abstract

Total vegetation cover, cover of woody species, and participation of dominants in later (pre-forest) successional stages of 16 successional seres starting on bare ground in various human-disturbed habitats (Czech Republic, Central Europe) were compared and evaluated from the viewpoint of restoration ecology. Continuous vegetation was formed before the 15th year of succession in all the seres studied. The establishment and expansion of woody species tended to be easier under moderate environmental conditions and was retarded in rather extreme habitats (dry, wet, nutrient poor, acid). The later-successional dominants were all native species and some rare and endangered species were recorded in these stages. The main conclusion is that spontaneous succession can be relied upon in restoration projects except in the case of extreme, especially toxic substrata. To leave a site to allow spontaneous processes to revegetate it is especially advantageous if the disturbed site is small, surrounded by natural vegetation, and if site conditions were not principally altered by the disturbance. Spontaneous succession is cheap and spontaneously revegetated sites usually exhibit higher natural value. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
