Wetland seedlings, in addition to dealing with the effects of flooding, must gain access to sunlight and avoid herbivore damage in order to establish. Understanding the effects of environmental factors on seedling growth and how plants modify their functional traits in response to them, is a challenge of wetland ecology. We evaluated the effects of different conditions of soil flooding (flooded and mesic), sunlight (closed and no canopy) and herbivory (presence and absence) on the survival… CONTINUE READING
