Abstract

Evaluates the effects of herbivory and competition on four plant species, including Coreopsis tinctoria. The study found interactions between competition and herbivory. For C. tinctoria, the combined effects of herbivory and competition were less than expected if each factor was considered alone. The article provides information on the competitive strength of C. tinctoria compared to other species when herbivory is present.
