Two of these groups were represented by one species each, amphibious responders (Ammannia multiflora) and low-growing amphibious tolerators
In prudential (non-moral) reasons, the self-interest of the tolerator
is the only reason to tolerate.
Growth strategy Ruderal/competitor Stress tolerator
Overall homeostasis 17.
In an introductory statement, for example, Lou Brown refers to the "horrible institution wards that were justified and evidenced by AAMD"; to children "excluded and rejected from public schools by too many of the continuum tolerators
of CEC"; to "segregated activity centers and workshops that were owned and operated by ARCS"; and to unnatural living environments that were certified as acceptable by the ruling professionals" (p.
In these resource-poor communities, dominated by stress tolerators
, additional N would favor the invasion of more competitive species, especially grasses.
Another intermediate group, competitive stress tolerators
(C-S), is here represented by Quercus robur.

. Significance levels are based on F values (df = 1, 45) from a MANOVA of diversity variables on treatment (patchy vs.
Subordinate species such as Thelypteris, Hydrocotyle, and Peucedanum may be considered stress tolerators
in the sense of Grime (1979).
