Seedling survival responses to conspecific density, soil nutrients, and irradiance vary with age in a tropical forest.

Abstract

Understanding processes that promote species coexistence is integral to diversity maintenance. In hyperdiverse tropical forests, local conspecific density (LCD) and light are influential to woody seedling recruitment and soil nutrients are often limiting, yet the simultaneous effects of these factors on seedling survival across time remain unknown. We fit… (More)
