This chapter examines competitive interactions in California grasslands, first presenting the major components of grassland communities, including descriptions of their phenology and growth strategies. It then describes how various life-history characteristics affect growth and survival and the interactions between species. Finally, the chapter considers how management strategies can be used to alter competitive interactions to favor native species, including grazing regimes and seed addition.
