  • Non-native annual grasses dominate most Californian mediterranean-cli- mate grasslands today. However, native Californian grassland flora persists in grasslands on serpentine-derived soils. We manipulated soil nutrient resources to explore the links between nutrient availability, plant productivity, and the relative abundances of native and non-native species in serpentine grassland. Factorial combinations of nitrogen, phos- phorus, and other components of a nutritionally complete formula were… CONTINUE READING
