The effects of grazers on the performance of individuals and populations of scarlet gilia, Ipomopsis aggregata

  title={The effects of grazers on the performance of individuals and populations of scarlet gilia, Ipomopsis aggregata},
  author={Joy Bergelson and Michael J. Crawley},
I. aggregata exhibits considerable powers of regrowth following removal of its primary shoot by herbivores, but we found no evidence of overcompensation (i.e. of significantly higher plant performance where plants were exposed to ungulate herbivory) in a comparison between individuals on grazed and ungrazed sides of exclosure fences, in a comparison between artificially clipped and control plants in one population in the Okanagan National Forest, or in comparisons between grazed and ungrazed… CONTINUE READING
