Abstract

We consider the disturbance-controlled persistence of perennial plant pop- ulation with a transition matrix modelling, and discuss the contribution of perennation to the population persistence under the periodically occured ecological disturbance. Our mathematical results indicates that the eco- logical disturbance with an appropriate period assures the persistence of a subordinate species of plant. Further, we demonstrate that, under some pe- riodically occurred ecological disturbance, the perennation
