Female Reproductive Success of Narrow Endemic Erodium Paularense in Contrasting Microhabitats

  title={Female Reproductive Success of Narrow Endemic Erodium Paularense in Contrasting Microhabitats},
  author={Maria Jose Albert and Adri{\'a}n Escudero and Jose M. Iriondo},
In 1996, we investigated the female reproductive success of the narrow endemic Erodium paularense in a population with a mixture of rock and lithosol microhabitats. The main purposes of this study were to determine the main factors that affected reproductive success and whether these factors were influenced by differences in the two contrasting microhabitats. In both microhabitats, fruit set was low, and seed abortion rates were very high. Lithosol plants were larger and had higher flower… CONTINUE READING
