Example text

The neighborhood radius of the circle that explains most of the variability in performance) was determined by statistical fitting, the number of neighbors within the neighborhood alone had almost equal predictive power as more detailed and complicated models. The assumptions of this approach are that the neighborhood can be considered internally homogeneous and that individuals of the same species can be considered equal, independent of their size. If these assumptions hold, then modeling and analyses of plant neighborhoods are quite tractable.

This suggests that we cannot always infer fecundity from plant size alone, which presents more obstacles to the development of neighborhood models of plant performance. Because of the indeterminate, modular nature of plant growth and the resultant plasticity in plant size, which means that a neighbor may be a tiny seedling or a huge adult, many researchers consider the number of neighbors alone an insufficient measure of local crowding. Therefore, several researchers have attempted to describe the competitive neighborhoods of plants more fully by looking at the distance and size as well as the number and species of neighbors.

Survival of seedlings was reduced by the presence of neighbors up to a distance of 20 cm. More distant neighbors no longer had an effect on survival but still reduced growth. There are numerous studies that demonstrate negative neighborhood interactions (see Chapter 3). However, information on the relative importance of different mechanisms in different environments and evidence for the importance of the observed effects for population or community processes are rarely available. 4 What is a Plant's Neighborhood?
