The study conducted by Klemow and Raynal

The study conducted by Klemow and Raynal (1981) suggests that the ecology of Melilotus alba is considered in open habitats including grasslands, roadsides, and railways that can also be considered disrupted lands. Their study researched the population ecology of Melilotus alba that were located in a limestone quarry. The research findings suggest that Melilotus alba exhibits a higher population density at the beginning of the spring season and is reduced during the summer season, slightly increasing during the fall and once again decreasing during the winter season due to a number of factors including seed germination, differences in temperatures as well as some biotic factors.
