Seed and vegetative reproduction in relation to density in Fragaria virginiana
Hieracium pratense and Fragaria virginiana were the two most abundant understory forbs, whereas Poa pratensis, Poa compressa, Agropyron repens, and Anthoxanthum odoratum were the most abundant graminoids.
In mid-June, we quantified the densities of all understory forbs in each plot in 1988 and 1989, and also for the eight dominant understory forbs (Hieracium pratense, Fragaria virginiana, Taraxacum officinale, Daucus carota, Erigeron strigosus, Chrysanthemum leucanthamum, Potentilla simplex, and Carlina vulgaris) during 1988-1990 and in 1992.
These species were Hieracium pratense, Fragaria virginiana, Taraxacum officinale, Daucus carota, Chrysanthemum leucanthamum, Potentilla simplex, and Carlina vulgaris.
