The proposed action is based on that regularly carried out by the Jay, Garrulus glandarius (Linnaeus, 1758), a corvid that also feeds on acorns that it collects from oak trees to transport them to safe hiding places. The dispersion carried out by the Jay ensures the expansion of the oaks into suitable areas adjacent to the existing oaks, and their maintenance within the area in which the oaks are present.

Abstract

The proposed action is based on that regularly carried out by the Jay, Garrulus glandarius (Linnaeus, 1758), a corvid that also feeds on acorns that it collects from oak trees to transport them to safe hiding places. The dispersion carried out by the Jay ensures the expansion of the oaks into suitable areas adjacent to the existing oaks, and their maintenance within the area in which the oaks are present. If man could therefore collect acorns and bury them in suitable sites, he would help the Jay in his work of multiplication of oaks and therefore of propagation of woods, "real" woods and not reforestations, with their heritage of complexity and biodiversity.
