Herbivore-limited establishment of a Sonoran desert tree, Cercidium microphyllum



Herbivore-limited establishment of a Sonoran desert tree, Cercidium microphyllum



Ecology 67(1): 276-280



Distributions of C. microphyllum seedlings in relation to other perennial plant cover were determined in bajada habitats at 2 sites in SW Arizona and one site in NW Mexico and a rocky habitat in Arizona. Significantly more recently emerged seedlings than saplings were found in open areas of bajada, but far more saplings were rooted beneath perennial plant canopies, especially of Ambrosia spp., than would be expected if spatial distribution was random.
