Abstract

Survival, fecundity and growth showed small responses to the density manipulations. In large individuals these traits tended to decrease with increasing density; small plants were in several respects favoured by more crowded conditions. Mortality at the seedling stage as well as density-independent determinants of growth appear to maintain the adult population below the threshold at which neighbour interactions have strong effects.-from Author
