The selection pressures experienced by clonal plants in heterogeneous environments may be significantly affected by physiological integration among ramets via rhizome connections. We experimentally examined how connections affected the response to saline soil conditions in Ambrosia psilostachya clones from natural saline basins in eastern Nebraska. Paired stems connected by uniform lengths of rhizome were grown in partitioned pots in 3 watering regimes: (1) both stems watered with tapwater, (2… CONTINUE READING
