    Abstract

    A remnant population of the endangered semi-aquatic Plantago cordata persists in a stream that meanders through a small forest island in S Wisconsin. The population is small but demographically stable because of low rates of adult mortality and low but continual seedling recruitment. Deteriorated habitat conditions are contributing to the small population size by reducing the availability of suitable microsites for seedling establishment, a critical phase in the life-cycle of P. cordata. -from Authors
