Response to density in a wild population of the perennial herb Salvia lyrata: variation among families

Author(s): R. G. Shaw

Month: May

Abstract

Quantifies genetic variation in response to conspecific density and environmental differences. Seed collected from one field were planted in the source field and neighboring fields at different densities. Both density and spatial location had major effects on fitness, indicating environment-dependent selection.
