Environmental and genetic determinants of plant size in Viola sororia
Author(s): A. E. Antlfinger, W. F. Curtis, O. T. Solbrig
Article Topic(s): Genetics, Light, Morphology
Research Setting(s): Forest
Species Referenced: Viola sororia (Missouri violet),
AbstractInvestigates the basis of size variation among individuals of Viola sororia by growing wild collected genets under different light regimes in the greenhouse. The study concludes that size differences in natural populations are due to both differences in environment and genetics.
