Density-dependence in Salvia lyrata: Experimental alteration of densities of established plants
Author(s): R. G. Shaw
Publication Type: Article
Journal: Journal of Ecology
Article Topic(s): Competition,Establishment methods
Research Setting(s): Field
Species Referenced: Salvia lyrata (Lyreleaf sage),
AbstractInvestigates 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.
