Abstract

Studies on nine isolated populations of G. lutea in the Ukrainian Carpathians have shown that a competitive strategy is characteristic of this species. However, strong shading, sodding, and anthropogenic impact on the populations lead to manifestations of stress-tolerant strategy, while various damage to grass sod stimulates the development of ruderal characteristics.
