And the presence and impact of pests that may affect some species but not others. Shade tolerance and initial growth rates are often invoked as i m p o r t a n t factors and are used as the mechanistic basis in models of the FORET type (see Shugart, 1984) for predicting growth and survival rates. T h e r e are arguments to be made for the assertion that mixed stands will be m o r e stable than pure stands because of the capacity of different species to exploit a range of niches and conditions, and there are also a r g u m e n t s to be made to the contrary on the g r o u n d s that a single species, well-suited to its environment, will d o m i n a t e the system and eliminate competitors.
