Effects of competition on photosynthetic rate and stomatal conductance of Sorghastrum nutans

Abstract

Researches the effects of competition with Schizachyrium scoparium and Solidago canadensis on photosynthesis and growth of Sorghastrum nutans. Increasing competition resulted in decreased photosynthetic activity and growth of S. nutans. Root:shoot ratio was affected by competition but the result was dependent on the competing species.
