  • Flowering time differences between metal-tolerant and nontolerant populations of the grass Anthoxanthum odoratum growing across a mine boundary have persisted for over 40 years. These flowering time differences result in a high degree of prezygotic genetic isolation (isolation index=0.43) between the tolerant mine populations and nontolerant pasture populations. Previous work showing genetic determination of flowering time and a high turnover of individual plants argues strongly for the… CONTINUE READING
