Abstract

Compares the morphology of various traits between monoecious and dioecious populations of Sagittaria latifolia under different fertilizer regimes. Fertilizer increased leaf size in both populations but more so in dioecious populations. Fertilizer increased corm production in monoecious populations and delayed time to flowering in dioecious populations. Difference in phenotypic plasticity may be due to the disturbed vs. competitive habitats in which monoecious and dioecious populations occur, respectively.
