Abstract

Studies on whether or not species which need more light for establishment have smaller seeds should be made between plants of similar mature height living in the same soil and macroclimate. Salisbury's classic comparisons confused differences in light-requirement during establishment with differences in mature height and in the supply of soil resources.
