The ecology of chalk heath: its relevance to the calcicole-calcifuge and soil acidification problems



The ecology of chalk heath: its relevance to the calcicole-calcifuge and soil acidification problems



J. Ecol 57: 175-212



Calcicoles and calcifuges both had roots growing in soil at pH 5-6 and both regenerated from seed at this pH. It is suggested that competition, combined with physical factors such as poor aeration and too low temperature are most important in excluding strict calcicoles from most soils of pH 5-6 in Britain.
