Evidence suggests that larger plant species are better competitors for aboveground resources; however, smaller plant species are more numerous and make up the bulk of species in most communities. Using a glasshouse experiment, we demonstrate that large species suffer more under intraspecific competition, a pattern that diminishes any size advantage in interspecific competition.
