Serial Adjustments in Allocation to Reproduction: Effects of Photosynthetic Genotype

  title={Serial Adjustments in Allocation to Reproduction: Effects of Photosynthetic Genotype},
  author={Anne Michele Arntz and Elaine M. Vozar and Lynda F Delph},
Life history theory predicts that trade-offs between size and reproductive traits should increase when resources are more limited. This prediction is commonly tested by using plant size as a surrogate for resource status or by comparing trade-offs across treatments that experimentally manipulate size or environmental resources. In this study, we take a novel and potentially effective approach and compare two well-characterized genotypes of Amaranthus hybridus that differ in photosynthate… CONTINUE READING
