Evolutionary potential of Chamaecrista fasciculata in relation to climate change. 1. Clinal patterns of selection along an environmental gradient in the great plains

Abstract

A mutual transplant experiment was conducted with populations of Chamaecrista fasciculata from the Great Plains region. Northern populations had less genetic diversity and lower heritability of traits compared to southern populations. Northern populations also experienced reductions in fecundity at more southern sites.
