Does plant competition intensity rather depend on biomass or on species identity?


Does plant competition intensity rather depend on biomass or on species identity?

DOI: 10.1078/1439-1791-00080

In two experiments, we tested whether species specific traits or mainly biomass determines the competitive strength of plant individuals in resource-poor habitats. As measure of competition intensity, we calculated the log Response Ratio (lnRR) based on total biomass for three key species of early successional stages on inland dunes.
