Jonathan M. Levine, A. Kathryn McEachern, and Clark Cowan. 2011. Seasonal timing of first rain storms affects rare plant population dynamics. Ecology 92:2236–2247.

Appendix A. Additional demographic responses to the experimental manipulation of the first major rains for the three focal species of the study.

   FIG. A1. Gilia (A, B), Malacothrix (C, D), and Phacelia (E) per germinant fecundity as a function of the first storm treatments in 2005 and 2006. The first storm treatments are ordered by date with the natural storms (N1–N4) shown in black and the experimentally imposed storms (E1–E4) shown in gray. Bars show means + 1 SE.

   FIG. A2. The response of Malacothrix survival to the ordinal date of the storm treatments (R2 = 0.62, P = 0.001).
