Abstract

In a comparative demographic study of the rare Eupatorium resinosum and the more common Eupatorium perfoliatum, researchers found that E. resinosum had lower reproductive rates (sexual and asexual) and higher seedling establishment rates than E. perfoliatum. All three populations of E. resinosum under study had positive projected growth rates while only one of three populations of E. resinosum had a positive growth rate.
