Figure 3: Mean per-species relative fruit production (proportion of inflorescences developing to mature fruit stage) of grasses (open circles) and herbs/sedges (filled circles), as a function of each species’ date of fruit maturation (see text for explanation). Two grazing regimes were compared, late onset of grazing (grazing from mid-July to early October), and continuous stocking (grazing from mid-May to early October) in a semi-natural grassland at Harpsund, see text for explanations. Spearman’s rank correlation coefficients, rs, are shown, together with significance tests. For clarity, no error bars are shown.
