  • Evolution was measured over 16 years in a self-regenerating, bulk-hybrid subterranean clover population, consisting of F2 seed from 253 crosses, sown at Nabawa and Mt Barker, short and long growing season sites, respectively, in south-western Australia. Seed bank samples harvested annually were grown in a common garden. Experiment 1 measured flowering time in plants from each year, while Experiment 2 measured 26 variables in the populations 3 and 16 years after sowing, in comparison with the… CONTINUE READING
