Genetic tracking of density‐dependent adult recruitment: A case study in a subtropical oak

Xin Tong, John D. Nason, Yuan‐Yuan Ding & Xiao-Yong Chen
Density-dependent recruitment is fundamental to understanding species diversity and community dynamics in plants. Although there is compelling evidence that seeds and seedlings die from conspecific negative density dependence (CNDD) as predicted by the Janzen–Connell hypothesis, characterizing adult recruitment remains a challenge for long-living trees. Previous studies have used the decrease of fine-scale spatial genetic structure (FSGS) across life stages to indicate CNDD; however, this has not been tested rigorously. We addressed these challenges by integrating...
