Responding to change : phenotypic plasticity and local adaptation, case studies using native and invasive Erodium species

Davidson, Amy Michelle

Description

Phenotypic plasticity is often postulated to play a role in plant invasions. This thesis explores the role of plasticity in plant invasions with particular emphasis on responses to water availability. The thesis employed two main approaches; the first was a meta-analysis of published literature. The second approach was the use of greenhouse experiments on populations of a congeneric native (Erodium crinitum) - invasive (E. cictuarium ) species pair using seed collected along a natural rainfall...[Show more]
