Naturevolume 169page1098 (1952) | Download Citation



IN order to find out on how small a scale ecological differentiation can occur, a study is being made of the differentiation in the grass Agrostis tenuis in the region around Aberystwyth. Samples of sixty separate tillers taken at random from each of a number of different habitats have been cultivated, suitably laid out in trial, in an experimental garden. A considerable amount of very local differentiation has been found, an account of which will be published elsewhere.
