AbstractExamines ecotypic differentiation of populations of Andropogon virginicus from an old field and a nearby granite outcrop. Differences were found in drought tolerance, leaf resistance, and amounts of acid phosphatase enzyme on root surfaces. The differences were attributed to edaphic (soil) differences and persisted when plants were grown in a common environment.
