Record #183231:

Floral herbivory of Dryas octopetala by Svalbard reindeer / Elisabeth J. Cooper, Philip Wookey.

Title: Floral herbivory of Dryas octopetala by Svalbard reindeer / Elisabeth J. Cooper, Philip Wookey.
Author(s): Cooper, Elisabeth J.
Wookey, Philip.
Date: 2003.
In: Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research. (2003.), Vol. 35(3) (2003)
Abstract: Reports constraint of reproductive potential of keystone vascular plant species, such as Dryas octopetala, by low summer temperatures in polar semidesert communities of north-west Spitsbergen, resulting in infrequent production of viable seed. Considers hypothesis that summer foraging behaviour of reindeer (Rangifer tarandus platyrynchus) may further limit successful seed production due to intense selective grazing pressure on flowering shoots. Surveys of neighbouring coastal tundra areas with contrasting reindeer population densities reveal direct evidence of strong grazing pressure.
