Author(s): P. A. Fay and M. J. Schultz

Year: 2009

Journal: Acta Oecologica
Volume: 35
Issue: 5
Pages: 679-684

Article Topic(s): Climate change,Germination,Establishment methods
Research Setting(s): Prairie

Species Referenced: Andropogon gerardii (Big bluestem), Echinacea purpurea (Eastern purple coneflower),

Abstract

Germination, growth and survival of 8 prairie species were studied in relation to soil moisture levels. Responses varied by species; however some evidence was found that greater moisture levels increased seedling growth, but not germination.
