      The characterization of suitable microsites for tree seedling establishment and growth is one of the most important tasks to achieve the restoration of native forest using natural processes in disturbed sites. For that, we assessed the natural Quercus petraea forest expansion in a year-old reclaimed open-cast mine under sub-Mediterranean climate in northern Spain, Cited by: 6.
