Most species tested had some inhibitory effect on growth or germination of Avena fatua, an effect reduced when leachates from intact plants rather than from plant fragments were used. Few inhibitory effects on the germination of Calluna vulgaris or Deschampsia flexuosa were found, although growth of D. flexuosa plants was strongly inhibited by leachates from ericaceous species. Arctostaphylos uva-ursi produced the greatest number of inhibitory effects but also severely inhibited its own growth.-from Author
