The forest under-storey herbs Anemone nemorosa, Lamiastrum galeobdolon and Veronica montana are generally considered indicator species of old, broadleaved woodland sites where the soil fertility is often low. In a glasshouse bioassay, however, all three species not only showed large positive growth responses to supplied P concentrations (0–10 mg L −1) solutions, but also tolerated high P concentrations (20–40 mg L −1), well above those normally found in their natural habitat. Plants responded… CONTINUE READING
