Questions Numerous grassland biodiversity experiments have explored how plant diversity influences colonization by vascular plants, but no such studies have examined how sown vascular plant diversity structures colonization by bryophytes, which can contribute greatly to grassland diversity. Location Grassland biodiversity experiment (Jena Experiment), Germany. Methods We studied bryophyte composition in experimental grasslands encompassing a gradient of vascular plant species richness (1, 2, 4… CONTINUE READING
