Role of clonal integration in wetlands



Spartina alterniflora

Biomass allocation was in controls or in shallow and deep water treatments were 119%, 108% and 149% higher than severed in old ramets

Clonal integration enhance the growth of S. alterniflora under flooding stress


Carex praeclara

By increase in sand burial intensity the mother ramet supported young ramet through increase in photosynthetic efficiency

With severing treatment biomass allocation was affected due to sand burial


Spartina alterniflora

At 5%, 20% and 35% substrate salinity level the growth and sexual reproduction decreased with increment in salinity level

Clonal integration very limited role on salinity and the growth and sexual

reproduction of mother and daughter ramets


Scirpus mariqueter

Reciprocal translocation of resources were found in creekside communities within old and young ramets

In response to disturbance clonal integration may play a significant role
