Plastic responses of plants exposed to mechanical stress can lead to modified, performance-enhancing, morphologies, sometimes accompanied by costs to reproduction. The capacity to present short-term plastic responses to current stress, the resulting performance (expected lower mechanical forces), and the costs of such responses to reproduction were tested for four aquatic plant species. Two ramets of the same genet were submitted to running vs standing water treatment. Traits describing the… CONTINUE READING
