A developmental stability approach and network connectance analysis were used in order to evaluate the water deficit response of two common bean genotypes with different drought tolerances. Plants were subjected to periods of drought throughout vegetative growth, and leaf fluctuating asymmetry and organ development connectance were evaluated. The tolerant genotype showed higher levels of organ connectance and lower symmetry deviations than the susceptible one, indicating a higher level of… CONTINUE READING
