Species Interactions Alter Evolutionary Responses to a Novel Environment

Figure 3

The interspecific impacts of resource use on relative growth.

Interspecific effect on relative growth among species inferred from their ability to grow on sterile beech tea previously used by each other species, shown separately for each treatment. Blue arrows indicate negative effects on growth, and red arrows indicate positive effects on growth. The width of the arrow represents the maximum growth rate (VMAX) on used tea minus the maximum growth rate on unused tea (underlying data in Figure S1 and linear model in Table S4). Dashed lines indicate that growth on used tea was not significantly different from growth on unused tea.
