Variation in seed traits of Lobelia inflata (Campanulaceae): sources and fitness consequences.
TLDR
Small seed size in Lobelia inflata has a persistent and significant association with both final plant size and the probability of survival to autumn, and a trade-off is found between the number and size of seeds contained in a fruit after correcting for fruit size.
