Camila T. Castanho, Alexandre A. Oliveira and Paulo Inácio Prado The importance of plant life form on spatial associations along a subtropical coastal dune gradient Journal of Vegetation Science 23
We investigated the spatial association between isolated adult trees and understory plants from distinct life-forms. While most of the understory life-forms were neutral to negatively associated with adult trees, young trees were positively associated with them. These results indicate a positive feedback between trees that potentially explain the transition between open vegetation to forest in subtropical coastal dunes.
