Jennifer A. Rudgers, Tom E. X. Miller, Shaun M. Ziegler, and Kelly D. Craven. 2012. There are many ways to be a mutualist: Endophytic fungus reduces plant survival but increases population growth. Ecology 93:565–574.

Appendix C (TABLE C1). Parameters and empirical point estimates for Cinna arundinacea - Neotyphodium schardlii population dynamics. Parameters f and s represent the fecundity and survival, respectively, of symbiotic (E+) and symbiont-free (E-) hosts. F and S are the ratios of symbiotic to symbiont-free values. r represents the host life history context and is defines as f- / s-. Empirical estimates for f are based on seed production multiplied by recruitment probability.
