The Beta species complex shows a gradient of life histories from pronounced semelparity (big-bang reproduction) to pronounced iteroparity (repeated reproduction). Models assume a trade-off between investment in reproduction and survival. Reproductive effort is thought to increase with decreasing life span, and to be invariable in semelparous plants and susceptible to environmental conditions in iteroparous plants. These assumptions and hypotheses were verified by a greenhouse experiment testing… CONTINUE READING
