AbstractReports on the results of a census of Viola sororia over eight years in a forest in New England. An in-depth study of seedlings is also presented. The life expectancy of a 1-year-old plant was over 10 years. The risk of mortality was greater in May-September when plants were active then in winter months. Plant size governed seedling survival and seed production.
