   FIG. C1. Mean aboveground biomass of individual tufts clipped each interval for three consecutive growing seasons, for two of the four species sampled at each of the seven sites. Bars show geometric mean of the dry mass of aboveground parts for the control (solid bars) and defoliation (open bars) treatment. Dashed line shows the total rainfall for each sampling interval. The day of the growing season at the end of each interval is shown on the y-axis (0 indicates the start of a new season).
