Abstract

Studies the population dynamics of Salvia lyrata grown in a greenhouse for four years. The study exemplifies the population cage approach, frequently used in long-term studies of animals. The plants that founded the population had a high probability of survival and produced the greatest number of seeds and seedlings. The population declined from the original cohort, likely due to density dependent factors. The greenhouse population is compared with that in a nearby mown field.
