AbstractExamines effects of forest age and disturbance on the persistence and sexual reproduction of Arisaema triphyllum. Sexual reproduction was greater in forest gaps than closed canopies. However, clonal growth did not differ among the forest sites. The results suggest that sexual reproduction may be resource limited while clonal growth is resource independent.
