AbstractInvestigates the trade-off between sexual and vegetative reproduction in Heliotropium currassavicum growing in Egypt. In closed sites, most recruitment was from vegetative reproduction and the phalanx growth form dominated. In open sites, most recruitment was from sexual reproduction and the guerrilla growth form dominated. Information on the life table and fecundity are included.
