Recruitment of Q. kelloggii seedlings (number of seeds surviving in August out of 50 planted) in experimental gardens as predicted by measured average July daily maximum temperature at all study sites (a) 2 m and (b) 0.05 m above the soil surface. Fitted lines are from 2nd-order polynomial quasi-Poisson GLMs based on number of recruits as the response variable. Abbreviations: TEF, Teakettle Experimental Forest; SJER, San Joaquin Experimental Range; TRF, Tejon Ranch Foothill site; TRM, Tejon Ranch Montane site.
