    Effect of competition intensity on recruitment of palatable and unpalatable grasses
    In this study, we made an attempt to reveal how competition intensity from established plants impacts on palatable and unpalatable grass seedlings recruitment, in a natural mesic grassland of central Argentina. Our objective was to assess the seedling recruitment of a palatable species (Chascolytrum subaristatum ) and an unpalatable species (Nassella trichotoma ) in microsites differing in competition intensity from established plants. Identity (C. subaristatum and N. trichotoma ) and defoliation severity were used as surrogate for competition intensity.
