|Study area||Number of restoration trials established||Experimental treatments examined||Mean (+/- SE) early survival (%)|
|Veracruz||4||Land use history and site effect on mixed plantations||45% + 7 after 1 year, 35.3% + 8 after 2 years|
|1||Performance of species selected by local people, improved establishment techniques||60% + 8 after 17 months|
|Oaxaca||7||Different combinations of tree species and soil types||88% + 2, range 58-100%|
|Northern Argentina||1||Tree density, mixtures of different native species, use of exotics as nurse trees, vulnerability to pathogens under different treatments.||
Native species: <5 to 30%.
Exotic species: usually >30%.
|Southern Argentina||2||Herbivory, nurse-shrub protection, seedling age||
Zero without nurse shrubs.
36% (± 20) under nurse shrubs without protection
47% (± 24) under nurse shrubs with protection from herbivores
|Central Chile||5||Irrigation, nurse plants||47% ± 15|
