The effect of gap dynamics on the size and spatial structure of Solidago sempervirens on primary coastal dunes

AbstractExamines effects of gap dynamics on the establishment of Solidago sempervirens. Coastal dune blowouts allow S. sempervirens to disperse seed and become established in an environment otherwise dominated by Ammophila breviligulata, American beachgrass. Dune blowouts served as seed sources but regeneration sites were primarily in neighboring transition and undisturbed grassland areas.
