Abstract

Compares microhabitats of scrub specialists with their habitat-generalist congeners. Polygonella robusta is a habitat generalist that was compared with Polygonella basiramia. The habitat specialists grew larger in areas of bare sand whereas seedling growth of the generalists was not affected by ground lichens and litter.
