Density-dependence in Salvia lyrata: Experimental alteration of densities of established plants

Author(s): R. G. Shaw

Month: Dec
Year: 1987

Publication Type: Article
Journal: Journal of Ecology
Volume: 75
Issue: 4
Pages: 1049-1063

Article Topic(s): Competition,Establishment methods
Research Setting(s): Field

Species Referenced: Salvia lyrata (Lyreleaf sage),

Abstract

Investigates the effects of conspecific density on the survival, fecundity, and growth of established individuals of Saliva lyrata in a natural population. Density manipulations resulted in small responses in Salvia lyrata. The population of mature S. lyrata does not exhibit strong density-dependent effects at typical natural densities.
