regeneration niche

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The specific niche that must exist in order for a plant to become re-established in an area it formerly occupied. A plant that can tolerate a wide range of environmental conditions when mature may nevertheless require very specific conditions for the germination and establishment of its seeds. For example, the Californian redwoods require burned soil and many grassland plants need disturbed, bare microsites for their germination.
