Sources of the extensive morphological variation of the species and hybrids ofPotamogeton were studied, especially from the viewpoint of the stability of the morphological characters used inPotamogeton taxonomy. Transplant experiments, the cultivation of clones under different values of environmental factors, and the cultivation of different clones under uniform conditions were performed to assess the proportion of phenotypic plasticity in the total morphological variation. Samples from 184… 
Taxonomic treatment and phylogenetic analysis of the family Potamogetonaceae in Turkey
TLDR
The results from ITS sequence divergence corroborate the separation of the two families noted by some authors, and are in accordance with the substantial morphological differences between them.
Discovery of a new, recurrently formed Potamogeton hybrid in Europe and Africa: molecular evidence and morphological comparison of different clones.
TLDR
The authors' observations may suggest the presence of some genetic mechanisms that promote a higher impact of the maternal lineage on the expression and evolution of the hybrid variability both at the molecular (direction of concerted evolution in hybrids) and the morphological level.
Phenotypic plasticity as a clue for invasion success of the submerged aquatic plant Elodea nuttallii.
TLDR
It is found that under more eutrophic conditions, E. nuttallii reach the water surface sooner than E. canadensis and through intensive branching outcompetes all other plants including E.canadensis, supporting the theory that more successful invaders have wider phenotypic plasticity.
Revision of chromosome numbers of Potamogetonaceae: a new basis for taxonomic and evolutionary implications
TLDR
The chromosome numbers of 181 samples of 47 species and 32 hybrids of Potamogetonaceae from 27 countries and areas are determined and reevaluated, giving an example of how the careful re-examination of chromosome numbers can substantially ameliorate interpretations of systematic and phylogenetic patterns.
Genetic differentiation, phenotypic plasticity and adaptation in a hybridizing pair of a more common and a less common Carex species
TLDR
Plasticity, genetic variation and genotype–environment interactions all contributed to regional differentiation of the closely related species, and the less common species showed slightly more genetic differentiation between populations and more maladapted traits than the more common one.
Phenotypic trait variation in invasive and non-invasive alien species of Potamogeton in Kashmir Himalayan lakes of varying trophic status
TLDR
12 out of 15 quantitative traits showed significant variation between invasive and non-invasive alien species of Potamogeton, thereby providing useful clues for invasiveness of the 3 species (P. crispus, P. nodosus and P. natans) in a typical eutrophic Dal lake.

Implications of phenotypic plasticity for numerical taxonomy of Ornithogalum montanum (Liliaceae)
TLDR
Results do not corroborate a previous recognition of six subspecies of O. montanum, and proximities in the phenetic space are shown to be at least partially environmentally dependent, suggesting a reaction norm for the character correlation matrix.

TLDR
The influence of diet on trophic morphology during ontogeny in Cichlasoma managuense was examined and two groups of full siblings were fed two different diets for eight months after the onset of feeding; thereafter both groups were fed a common diet.
Phenotypic plasticity of Elodea nuttalIii (Planch.) H. St John and Elodea canadensis Michx in the British Isles
Elodea nuttallii (Planch.) H. St John and E. canadensis Michx show a wide range of morphological variation, a feature which has caused many problems of identification. In the British Isles variation
THE VARIATION OF LEAF FORM IN POTAMOGETON PERFOLIATUS
TLDR
It is shown that submerged aquatics are particularly attractive to the experimental morphologist because, in the absence of transpiration and its attendant complications, the environment is simpler and comparatively easy to control.
Phenotypic plasticity and plant adaptation
TLDR
This paper focuses on phenotypic plasticity as a major mode of adaptation in plants, and examines difficulties in studying plasticity, including the conceptually critical distinction between functionally adaptive and inevitable aspects of response.
