Bearing fruit: flower removal reveals the trade-offs associated with high reproductive effort for lowbush blueberry

Abstract

Past studies have shown that taxa from disparate groups often respond similarly to reduced reproductive effort. These common responses imply that high reproductive effort trades off with a consistent set of other life functions for most angiosperms, albeit modulated by their growth form and life history. However, many questions remain about reproductive… (More)
