Germination, survival, and growth of grass and forb seedlings: effects of soil moisture variability
Author(s): P. A. Fay and M. J. Schultz
Journal: Acta Oecologica
Article Topic(s): Climate change,Germination,Establishment methods
Research Setting(s): Prairie
AbstractGermination, 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.
