THE possible existence of populations within a single species adapted to different soil conditions has long been realized and they have been termed ‘edaphic ecotypes’1. However, few cases of their occurrence have been described, and very few of these are in relation to soil conditions normally encountered2, most being in relation to special soil conditions such as in soils of serpentine origin or contaminated by heavy metals3,4. This is surprising in view of the fact that a major difference… Expand
Population Differentiation within Agrostis tenuis L. in response to Colliery Spoil Substrate Factors
TLDR
This work has shown that differential tolerance of aluminium within populations of Agrostis species has not previously been shown. Expand
Ecotypes and Community Function
TLDR
The role of the ecotype in community function clearly becomes one of allowing vegetational adjustment to habitat diversity, and genetic gradients within a number of species provide the key to the continuity of a vegetational type over habitat gradients. Expand
DIFFERENTIAL SURVIVAL OF PLANT TYPES IN SWARDS
Populations of Lolium spp., Dacrylis spp., and Phleum, each based on two or more cultivars, were subjected to three managements and iwo nitrogen levels. Rapid changes i n population structureExpand
POPULATION DIFFERENTIATION IN AGROSTIS TENUIS SIBTH
TLDR
The pattern of physiological differentiation was a graded patchwork similar to the pattern of morphological differentiation previously described, which occurred within a species such as Agrostis tennis. Expand
DIFFERENTIAL RESPONSE TO CALCIUM WITHIN THE SPECIES FESTUCA OVINA L.
TLDR
An investigation of population differentiation within the species Fcstuca ovina in relation to soil factors has shown that populations within this species differ greatly in their response to calcium in culture solution, as great as that previously shown to exist between extreme calcicole and calcifuges species.

Genecology of Agrostis capillaris L. (Poaceae) - an invader into New Zealand. 2. Responses to light, soil fertility, and water availability.
TLDR
Responses indicate some adaptation of populations to their local environments in New Zealand, but also high within-population variation and some instances of nonadaptation. Expand
FACTORS DETERMINING THE OCCURRENCE OF CALCIFUGE SPECIES ON SHALLOW SOILS OVER CALCAREOUS SUBSTRATA
In characterizing ferns and flowering plants as calcicole or calcifuge, ecologists have relied almost entirely upon the correlation of soil analyses with estimates of plant frequency. In many partsExpand
GROWTH CHARACTERISTICS OF GRASS AND LEGUME CULTIVARS AND THEIR POTENTIAL FOR LAND RECLAMATION
TLDR
Grass and legume species such as Coronilla varia and Lotus corniculatus, which have been successfully used in land reclamation, had relatively high root-weight ratios but had low mean relative growth rates. Expand
Comparative responses of Achillea millefolium ecotypes to competition and soil type
TLDR
There has been no apparent “trade-off” in these ecotypes between their response to the physical environment and their competitive ability and the predictions that rapid height growth and biomass accumulation contribute significantly to competitive ability are not supported. Expand
Differences in Susceptibility to Iron Chlorosis of Grass Species grown on Blanket Peat
VARIETAL differences in nutrient assimilation and yield response have been reported for several plant species1,2. The role of iron in the nutrition of certain crop plants has received particularExpand
