Table 3 V. vitis-idaea biomass, water and carbon storage (corrected by mean cover) at the ecosystem level. Decrease of analysed data was calculated with ancient pine forest without Q. rubra as a reference. Variants of the study: ancient (AF) and recent (RF) forests without (no inv) and with (inv) Q. rubra

From: Forest land use discontinuity and northern red oak Quercus rubra introduction change biomass allocation and life strategy of lingonberry Vaccinium vitis-idaea
