Abstract

Plants of Linum usitatissimum were grown under full and 50% light and at densities of 40, 160 and 400 plants per flat. Dynamics of leaf birth and death were measured and demographic parameters (intrinsic rate of growth, leaf survivorship, leaf death rate and life expectancy) were estimated for plant under the six treatments. A traditional growth analysis method was also used to examine the effects of light- and density- stress on various aspects of the growth and reproduction of the plants. In all cases the plants reacted to environmental change by altering their morphology and subsequent reproductive output.
