Does anyone have information on seasonal growth patterns in Smilax
rotundifolia? For my research I need to know whether "all annual growth is
completed in a short period in the spring" (R. L. Smith, 1974) is true of
newly germinated seedlings. I'm planning an experiment to test the effects
of shade and moisture on growth, but it won't work if there is no growth to
measure in the summer. Also, I'd love to hear from anyone else working on
PLEASE REPLY VIA EMAIL!
