Genetic constraints on the independent evolution of male and female reproductive characters in the tristylous plant Lythrum salicaria



Genetic constraints on the independent evolution of male and female reproductive characters in the tristylous plant Lythrum salicaria



Evolution 47(5): 1457-1471



The potential for independent evolution of male, female, and attractive traits was examined in the tristylous plant Lythrum salicaria. Significant narrow-sense heritabilities were noted for several traits, most of which were positive and hence could constrain biomass allocation to male and female floral parts. Significant negative partial correlations were noted at the phenotype level between male and female traits among morphs when flower size was controlled, but these trade-offs were not observed within morphs. .
