Title: Hierarchical patterns of symbiotic orchid germination linked to adult proximity and environmental gradients

Author: Diez, Jeffrey M.;

Date: 2007

Source: Journal of Ecology, Vol. 95: 159-170

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The recruitment stage can be critical in determining plant population dynamics, as juveniles encounter a range of abiotic and biotic stressors in the environments where they land after dispersal, and often experience high mortality rates. Although both abiotic and biotic constraints on recruitment are often assumed to operate at multiple scales, these relationships are rarely quantified in ways that enable prediction of recruitment dynamics across environmental gradients.

Keywords: germination, hierarchical bayesian, mycorrhizae, orchidaceae, prediction
