The microclimate has a significant influence on the survival and growth of seedlings. Microclimate is affected by macroclimate, site, vegetation and soil factors. The influence of these factors on the light, precipitation, humidity, wind, air temperature, soil moisture and soil temperature regimes of the seedling is explained. Examples of how site preparation can modify microclimate are presented.
