Jean H. Burns. 2008. Demographic performance predicts invasiveness of species in the Commelinaceae under high-nutrient conditions. Ecological Applications 18:335–346.

Appendix D. Figures for the life table response experiment analysis effect sizes for invasive and noninvasive Commelinaceae.

 
   FIG. D1. Life table response experiment (LTRE) analysis effect sizes for invasive species relative to their noninvasive congeners in high and low nutrient environments. Transitions were seed dormancy (SD), seed germination (SG), nonreproductive survival and vegetative reproduction (NN), nonreproductive growth (NR), reproductive to nonreproductive vegetative reproduction (RN), reproductive survival and vegetative reproduction (RR), and reproductive fecundity (RF). Sexual transitions were more important in self-compatible invasive species (Commelina and Murdannia), whereas vegetative reproduction was more important in self-incompatible invasive species (Tradescantia).
