The role of facilitation in seedling recruitment and survival patterns, in the Strandveld Succulent Karoo, South Africa



The role of facilitation in seedling recruitment and survival patterns, in the Strandveld Succulent Karoo, South Africa



Journal of Arid Environments 49(4): 809-821



A study was conducted during the winter of June 1995 on eight selected localities in the vicinity of Brand-se-Baai, South Africa to test the nurse-plant hypothesis for five shrub species, viz., Eriocephalus africanus, Othonna floribunda, Salvia africanalutea, Tripteris oppositifolia and Zygophyllum morgsana, which are dominant in the undisturbed Strandveld Succulent Karoo vegetation. At the remaining three localities, the vegetation consisted mostly of annual species.
