Figure 3

Density of seedlings, saplings, and mature plants of M. calvescens on A. evecta rhizome and bare soil. Data represents sites on the Three Coconuts Trail.

Figure 5

Correlation between the height of A. evecta rhizomes and the number of M. calvescens on them. Data represents sites on Three Coconuts Trail (a) and sites on Three Pines Trail (b). Density values were log transformed prior to analyses.

Figure 6

Soil nutrient comparison between three different microenvironments; substrates of the rhizomes of Angiopteris evecta, soil under the rhizomes, and bare soil.

Figure 7

Nutrient contents comparison between the substrates and the barks of six species; Angiopteris evecta, Inocarpus fagifer, Neonauclea forsteri, Falcataria moluccana, Barringtonia asiatica, and Hibiscus tiliaceus.
