Modeling differences in reproductive effort between iteroparous and semelparous reproductive strategies in Bromeliaceae
Cavitation resistance appears to be genetic, making it useful as a predictor of drought resistance.
For the first time, estimates of comparative seed yield and number for over 800 annuals and their predictor equations have been produced and the ecological importance of these regenerative traits has been illustrated.
Unpredictability means that the traits needed to survive in seasonally flooded marshes are different to tidally flooded marshes.
Whilst studies on Arabidopsis thaliana have generally been highly molecular and/or genetic in nature, most studies using A. halleri have addressed adaptation and variation in adaptive traits in the species’ natural habitat.
Is it better to grow fast, or to grow slowly and invest in the future? Structural Equation Modeling reveals that Pinus halepensis cannot decide.
