DISCUSSION--The comparisons growth curves (height) and final analyses of biomass indicated that depth to ground water, but not soil temperature, affected growth of Glycyrrhiza lepidota over its first growing season.
TABLE 1--Results of pairwise analysis of growth curves for Glycyrrhiza lepidota (n = 26 time points) grown using four combinations of two soil temperatures (W = warm; C = cool) and two depths to the water table (L = large; S = small).
Adherence of Glycyrrhiza lepidota and Xanthium strumarium both positively correlated with the density of undercoat hairs (left-hand side of Table 2).
The retention of Xanthium strumarium diaspores was significantly correlated with the density of undercoat hair, but those of Glycyrrhiza lepidota were not (right-hand side of Table 2).
Diaspores of Glycyrrhiza lepidota and Xanthium strumarium both showed significant positive correlations between undercoat density and adherence, however only X.
