Discordant longitudinal clines in flowering time and phytochrome C in Arabidopsis thaliana.

Abstract

Using seasonal cues to time reproduction appropriately is crucial for many organisms. Plants in particular often use photoperiod to signal the time to transition to flowering. Because seasonality varies latitudinally, adaptation to local climate is expected to result in corresponding clines in photoperiod-related traits. By experimentally manipulating… (More)
