Dispersal and colonisation of plants in lowland streams: success rates and bottlenecks

  title={Dispersal and colonisation of plants in lowland streams: success rates and bottlenecks},
  author={Tenna Riis},
Plant dispersal and colonisation, including rates of dispersal, retention, colonisation and survival of dispersed propagules (shoots and seeds), were studied in a 300-m stream reach in a macrophyte-rich lowland stream during one growing season. Relationships between colonisation processes and simple flow parameters were tested. Each fortnight during a growing season, the number of dispersed plant propagules and the number of new and lost plant colonisations since the last sampling day were… CONTINUE READING
