Abstract

Evaluates the interactive effects of salinity and deer browsing on flowering and seed production of Iris hexagona. Deer browsing increased below-ground clonal growth and flowering the following year. However, populations differed in their response. Plants protected from browsing produced 20 times more seed capsules than unprotected plants.
