Flowering, fruiting and seed germination in Chilean rain forest myrtaceae: ecological and phylogenetic constraints

  title={Flowering, fruiting and seed germination in Chilean rain forest myrtaceae: ecological and phylogenetic constraints},
  author={Cecilia Smith-Ram{\'i}rez and Juan J. Armesto and Javier Osorio Figueroa},
  journal={Plant Ecology},
Phenological studies in plant communities have generally focused on taxonomically heterogeneous species assemblages, and have only occasionally examined the evolutionary and ecological constraints on the phenological patterns of species within a single family or a genus. Here, we determine relative importance of phylogenetic versus other constraints on the flowering and fruiting periods of 12 species and the germination ecology of 10 species of Myrtaceae sympatric to the temperate rainforest of… CONTINUE READING
