Abstract

Analyzes density-dependence in Salvia lyrata. Established individuals reduced the proportion of seedlings emerging and surviving, but seed density had not effect on the proportion of seedlings emerging. Seeding at 720 seeds dm-2 resulted in fewer individuals surviving than seeding at 240 and 480 seeds dm-2. Numbers of seedlings are regulated by the negative effect of adults.
