Abstract

Seedling establishment in harsh environment was a rare and sporadic event due to the prevalent high temperatures and low moisture regimes. Also in response to harsh conditions seedlings establishment of many species appear to be more frequent under canopies of nurse plants. In these interactions the seedling benefit from the micro environment created by the adult nurse plants. In Himalaya some of the host plants are typically colonizer of nutrient-poor soils in habitats such as eroded soils and rocky surfaces. Many of the plants themselves do not yield economic goods, but they can promote the growth of more useful plants and have potential for reclamation of nutrient poor soils.
