Resource uptake by neighboring plants can be an important driver of natural selection in a changing environment. As climate and resource conditions are altered, genotypes that dominate within mixed populations today may differ markedly from those in future landscapes. We tested whether and how the dominance of different genotypes of the allergenic plant, common ragweed, may change in response to projected atmospheric CO2 conditions. We grew twelve maternal lines in experimental stands at either… CONTINUE READING
