Abstract

A number of seven microhabitats evaluated for seeding establishment were: under the canopy of Chrysopogon aucheri plants, under the canopy of Chrysopogon jwarancusa plants, within dead centers of Cymbopogon sucheri plantws, within dead centers of Cymbopogon jwarancuse plants, under the canopy of Artemisia maritima plants, gravel interspaces between plants, and soil interspaces between plants. Seeding emergence and establishment were evaluated under the natural precipitation regime of the 1997 growing season and a simulated, above-normal precipitation regime. Soil moisture and soil temperature data were recorded during the entire growing season...
