Phylogenetic signal in growth and reproductive traits and in their plasticity : the Descurainia radiation in the Canary Islands

Despite the extensive use of phylogenetic methods in comparative plant biology, there is little information on how traits and their plastic responses can be affected by phylogenetic constraints (i.e. limitations in phenotypic expression resulting from the phylogenetic history of a lineage), particularly in plant radiations that may have occurred over a… CONTINUE READING
