Abstract

North and Central Florida populations of Pityopsis graminifolia differed in their reproductive responses to fire, clipping and fertilization. North Florida populations increased bolting when treated with fire, clipping, ground clearing and fertilization while Central Florida populations did not. Differences in responses were determined to be genetic during a mutual transplant study.
