Phenotypic plasticity accounts for most of the variation in leaf manganese concentrations in Phytolacca americana growing in manganese-contaminated environments

Abstract

Phytolacca americana, a globally invasive species, is able to flourish in heavy metal-contaminated habitats. To improve understanding of the adaptive evolutionary mechanisms of plants under heavy metal stress, we investigated key factors contributing to variation in leaf manganese (Mn) content in P. americana. Genetic surveys and common garden experiments… (More)
