dc.description.abstractFloodplain forests are a critical link between land and river ecosystems, moderating nutrient fluxes, providing animal habitat, and stabilizing the river corridor. In the Upper Mississippi River (UMR), floodplain tree recruitment appears to be limited by whitetailed deer browsing. The effects of landscape position and species composition on deer activity in floodplain forest restoration sites were examined, along with the ways in which deer browsing and flooding interact to affect the growth of young trees.en
