Data on how plant-soil feedback affects growth of ragwort

Description

Data from an experiment looking at how the removal of soil biota affects plant-soil feedback and hence the growth of ragwort, Jacobaea vulgaris.

Usage

data("ragwort")

Format

A data frame with 45 observations on the following 3 variables.
