Heterogeneity generated by plant–soil feedbacks had species-specific effects on vital rates, with consequences for recruitment dynamics. Mixing soils of different origin often resulted in non-additive effects, which may indicate an interaction between soil abiotic and/or biotic properties. Quantifying the reciprocal effects of PSFs suggests PSF-generated heterogeneity may promote coexistence of certain species, which was not evident from individual PSF responses.
