Trade-offs between clonal and sexual reproduction in Sagittaria latifolia (Alismataceae) scale up to affect the fitness of entire clones

Author(s): W. E. Van Drunen, M. E. Dorken

Year: 2012

Volume: 196
Issue: 2
Pages: 606-616

Article Topic(s): Morphology,Propagation,Nutrients
Research Setting(s): Greenhouse

Species Referenced: Sagittaria latifolia (Broadleaf arrowhead),

Abstract

Investigates the trade-off between resources allocated to sexual reproduction versus resources allocated to clonal growth. Investment in resources allocated to female reproduction limits the quantity of clonal propagules while investment in resources allocated to male reproduction limits the nutrient content (specifically Nitrogen) of clonal propagules.
