Population differentiation in an annual legume: Local adaptation

Species Referenced: Chamaecrista fasciculata (Partridge pea),
AbstractEvaluates local adaptation across multiple distances in Chamaecrista fasciculata. Common garden studies were established in three field locations and planted with seed from the home population and from transplanted populations representing six different distances. There was little evidence of local adaptation, except at the furthest distances. This suggests that these populations are part of a metapopulation where gene flow between populations limits local adaptation.
