Abstract

Lobelia siphilitica and Lobelia cardinalis were used as model organisms to look for signs of genetically controlled physiological variance. Genetic control of variance was detected in both species for different physiological responses. Evidence for genetic regulation of all physiological responses was detected in L. siphilitica and for physiological responses associated with photosynthetic rate in L. cardinalis.
