BACKGROUND AND AIMS The genus Erica represents the epitome of plant biodiversity in the South African Cape region. It includes seeder and resprouter species, but both species diversity and narrow endemism are tightly associated with the seeder habit. It also includes 'mixed' species, in which both seeder and resprouter life histories are found. This intraspecific variation in life history is genetically based. METHODS The cotyledonary region and basal stem of seeder and resprouter seedlings… CONTINUE READING
