Clonal offspring of five morphologically distinct individuals of Taraxacum officinale were planted in a greenhouse experiment with each of three competitors, Plantago major, Poa pratensis and Trifolium pratense. The competitors were chosen to represent a series of competitive environments experienced by a natural population of T. officinale through the year. Differences in size, morphology, and response to the competitive environments were found among clones and support classification of the… CONTINUE READING
