Many species of dioecious plants show sex-related differences in growth rate and rates of attack by various herbivores and diseases. The common pattern is for males to grow faster than females and to be less well defended against herbivores. In willows (Salix spp.), the predominance of female-biased sex ratios has been ascribed in part to differential feeding by herbivores. In this study of Salix viminalis, seven families grown on agricultural land showed no gender-related variation in shoot… CONTINUE READING
