About this book

Previously published in Plant Ecology, Volume 201, No.2, 2009.

Herbaceous Plant Ecology provides an overview of recent advances in the ecology of various kinds of non-forested ecosystems (grasslands, deserts, and wetlands) on a variety of topics, including species diversity and the factors that control species diversity, impacts of disturbances (grazing, mowing, fire, flooding), establishment and reproduction ecology, and plant-plant interactions.

Contents

- Plant species richness and diversity of the serpentine areas on the Witwatersrand
- Temporal changes in species diversity and composition in abandoned fields in a trans-Himalayan landscape, Nepal
- Role of desert annuals in nutrient flow in arid area of Northwestern China: a nutrient reservoir and provider
- The effects of fire frequency and grazing on tallgrass prairie productivity and plant composition are mediated through bud bank demography
- Do plant functional types based on leaf dry matter content allow characterizing native grass species and grasslands for herbage growth pattern?
- Clonal growth strategies in simultaneously persistent and expanding Trifolium repens patches
- California native and exotic perennial grasses differ in their response to soil nitrogen, exotic annual grass density, and order of emergence
- Do seed and microsite limitation interact with seed size in determining invasion patterns in flooding Pampa grasslands?
- Feral horses dung piles as potential invasion windows for alien plant species in natural grasslands
- Reproductive allocation of Carex flava reacts differently to competition and resources in a designed plant mixture of five species
- Factors affecting the establishment and growth of annual legumes in semi-arid mediterranean grasslands
- Are irrigation and grazing effects transferred, accumulated, or counteracted during plant recruitment?
- Extent and spatial patterns of grass bald land cover change (1948-2000), Oregon Coast Range, USA
- Grass (Poaceae) richness patterns across China's nature reserves
- Interacting effects of grass height and herbivores on the establishment of an encroaching savanna shrub
- Effects of competition on root-shoot allocation in Plantago lanceolata L.: adaptive plasticity or ontogenetic drift?
- Rock-colonizing plants: abundance of the endemic cactus Mammillaria fraileana related to rock type in the southern Sonoran Desert
- Ecophysiological responses of nine floodplain meadow species to changing hydrological conditions
- Tolerance of a perennial herb, Pimpinella saxifraga, to simulated flower herbivory and grazing: immediate repair of injury or postponed reproduction?
- Differential herbivory tolerance of dominant and subordinate plant species along gradients of nutrient availability and competition
- Responses of clonal architecture to experimental defoliation: a comparative study between ten grassland species
- Diffuse knapweed (Centaurea diffusa Lam.) seedling emergence and establishment in a Colorado grassland
- Biodiversity and tallgrass prairie decomposition: the relative importance of species identity, evenness, richness, and micro-topography
- Herbivory and local genetic differentiation in natural populations of Arabidopsis thaliana (Brassicaceae)
- The effect of nutrient supply and light intensity on tannins and mycorrhizal colonisation in Dutch heathland ecosystems
- Spatial and temporal dynamics of floating and drift-line seeds at a tidal freshwater marsh on the Potomac River, USA
- Estimating plant competition coefficients and predicting community dynamics from non-destructive pin-point data: a case study with Calluna vulgaris and Deschampsia flexuosa
- Disturbance by mowing affects clonal diversity: the genetic structure of Ranunculus ficaria (Ranunculuaceae) in meadows and forests
- Soil amendment effects on the exotic annual grass Bromus tectorum L. and facilitation of its growth by the native perennial grass Hilaria jamesii (Torr.) Benth
- Effects of fire on the vegetation of a lowland heathland in North-western Italy
