An experimental study of seed removal of four woody species in an abandoned pasture revealed significant main effects of species, density (higher densities survived more than lower densities), and patch-type (seeds under shrub patches survived more than in grass patches), but no effects of season. Rates of seed loss decreased with seed size across species. Significant interactions between species and density and between species and patch-type were also observed.
