Abstract

Studies the allelopathic effects of Ceratiola ericoides on the germination and survival of six Florida scrub species, including Polygonella robusta and Palafoxia feayi. Species varied in germination and survival in response to C. ericoides leachates. Allelopathy may be responsible for bare sand patches in Florida scrub.
