(1) Effects of seed size and seedling morphology on the establishment of six monocarpic perennials were examined in glasshouse experiments. Both withinand between-species comparisons of seed-size effects were made as seed weight varied by more than two orders of magnitude among species and by 3 to 20-fold within a species. Experiments were conducted in four ground-cover types: bare soil, litter cover, vegetated, and vegetated plus litter. (2) In vegetated cover, emergence of the two small… Expand
