Sampling, Processing and Quality Control Methods
Step by Step Procedures
There were four exclosure treatments: 1) no consumers, 2) small-mammal consumers; 3) small and medium mammal-consumers; 4) all consumers. For each exclosure treatment there were two seed densities. Seed recruitment was quantified by counting the number of seedlings. Herbivory was quantified by measuring the height of seedlings. Also quantified was the number of adult plants and the length of the longest reproductive tiller.
