Lost in Phenotypic Space: Environment-Dependent Morphology in Phlox drummondii (Polemoniaceae)

Journal: International Journal of Plant Sciences
Article Topic(s): Provenance,Nutrients,Water,Stress,Disturbance
Research Setting(s): Greenhouse
Species Referenced: Phlox drummondii (Annual phlox),
AbstractExamines the relationships between traits in Phlox drummondii to plastic responses from natural populations to greenhouses. The article finds that the way plants respond to environmental variables changes depending upon the environment in which they are compared. Therefore, the phenotypic expression of the plant will be different according to its inherited traits and the environment in which it is growing.
