AbstractCompares growth, phenology, biomass allocation, and reproductive characters of four populations of Solidago sempervirens at four distances from the New Jersey coast. The population farthest inland had the greatest biomass and allocation to reproductive growth. Populations growing in the most unstable environments had a greater reproductive effort and fecundity than those populations.
