Bruknės (Vaccinium vitis-idaea L.) ataugimo dinamika pušynuose [Regrowth of cowberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea L.) in pinewoods]. – Botanica Lithuanica, 3(4): 323–333

Regrowth of the overground part of cowberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea L.) after cutting and influence of regulary repeated cuttings on regrowth in pinewood in three different habitats i.e. Vaccinioso-myrtillosa and Ledosphagnosa forest were studied. It was established, that even after four years after cutting the height of plants in experimental field was less then control. The regrown shrubs had less branches, but the length was the same as in control. The biomass of overground part of regrown plants of the third growth year exceeded control. Thought the overground part of cowberry after cutting did not reach the control during one season, even after each year repeated cuttings the degradation of regrowth was not observed
