Forest restoration in these grasslands and fernlands can be accelerated by increasing seed arrival by attracting seed dispersers with trees or artificial perches, and by clearing herbaceous vegetation and reducing competition. To determine an efficient strategy for restoring subtropical montane forest, we evaluate the success of natural regeneration 3 y after removing the dominant fern, Dicranopteris pectinata (Willd.) Underw. (Gleicheniaceae).
