Research Setting(s): Coastal
Species Referenced: Solidago sempervirens (Seaside goldenrod),
AbstractExamines the seed ecology of Solidago sempervirens on coastal dunes. Establishment seemed to be limited by dispersal rather than by site conditions. There were negligible numbers of seeds remaining in the soil one year following dispersal.
