The herbaceous layer is simultaneously exposed to and responds to many forest disturbances, ranging from microscale disturbances such as frost heaving and trampling by large vertebrates to more extensive and intensive disturbances resulting from herbivory, tree mortality, inundation, periodic fire, catastrophic wind damage, and forest management practices, including timber harvesting and use of herbicides. This chapter provides a conceptual overview of many of these disturbances.
