An assessment of the ruderal strategy in herbs: the case of Plantago hispidula

Auteurs :
WALKOWIAK, A. M.
SIMONETTI, J. A.

Description :
The hypothesis that Plantago hispidula has a ruderal strategy is tested in two habitat patches subjected to different degrees of disturbance by grazing. Plantago hispidula appears more successful in disturbed areas as measures of density and total biomass are greater there than in undisturbed areas. This differential success affects the diversity and evenness of the plant communities in which P. hispidula occurs.
