Phenotypic plasticity describes the phenomenon whereby a single genotype exhibits a range of phenotypes in response to variation in the environment (Bradshaw 1965; Fordyce 2006; Whitman & Agrawal 2009). Virtually any trait can be phenotypically plastic. Phenotypic plasticity allows organisms to respond to environmental fluctuations experienced over evolutionary time, and they may be responsive or anticipatory (see Whitman & Agrawal 2009; for a comprehensive review). Adaptive individual… CONTINUE READING
