Spatio-temporally variable effects of a dominant macrophyte on vascular plant neighbors
Author(s): G. N. Ervin
Publication Type: Article
Article Topic(s): Competition
Research Setting(s): Wetland
Species Referenced: Juncus effusus (Common rush),
AbstractEvidence for facultative interactions were observed between Juncus effusus and other tidal marsh species. Tussocks collapse from the inside during late spring reducing shading and allowing other plant species to become more abundant in the resulting depression. The factors regulating species diversity in these tussock depressions are discussed.
