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).
Exceptions were Anemone canadensis (on all substrates), Arctium minus (on mouse and raccoon), Bidens frondosa and Sanicula marilandica (on deer, mouse and pants), C, eum aleppicum (on pants), Glycyrrhiza lepidota and Xanthium strumarium (on mouse and pants) and Lappula echinata (on mouse).
Adherence of Glycyrrhiza lepidota and Xanthium strumarium both positively correlated with the density of undercoat hairs (left-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.
