Inherent conflicts between reaction norm slope and plasticity indices when comparing plasticity: a conceptual framework and empirical test

Wang, Shuo; Feng, Wei-Wei; Liu, Ming-Chao; Huang, Kai; Arnold, Pieter; Nicotra, Adrienne; Feng, Yu-Long


Phenotypic plasticity index (PI), the slope of reaction norm (K) and relative distances plasticity index (RDPI), the most commonly used estimators, have occasionally been found to generate different plasticity rankings between groups (species, populations, cultivars or genotypes). However, no effort has been made to determine how frequent this incongruence is, and the factors that influence the occurrence of the incongruence. To address these problems, we first proposed a conceptual framework...[Show more]
