Growth-survival trade-offs and allometries in rosette-forming perennials

Abstract:

1. Demographic rates such as growth and survival may interact directly as a result of allocation constraints, or indirectly through their relationship with structural characteristics. 2. We explored the relationship between growth and survival in a range of rosette-forming species across different habitats, and investigated possible mechanistic explanations for the patterns we found. 3. Results indicated a negative association between growth and survival in small plants across species in diff...
