Competition between plant populations with different rooting depths

  title={Competition between plant populations with different rooting depths},
  author={Frank Berendse},
The model proposed in the first paper in this series predicts that in mixtures of plant species with different rooting depths there will be an inverse correlation between the relative crowding coefficient of the deep rooting species with respect to the shallow rooting one and the frequency of the deep rooting plants. Two field experiments are reported in which this phenomenon was observed. The first experiment involved Plantago lanceolata L. and Lolium perenne L. and the second involved… CONTINUE READING
