Cyanogenesis in Turnera ulmifolia L. (Turneraceae): II. Developmental expression, heritability and cost of cyanogenesis



Cyanogenesis in Turnera ulmifolia L. (Turneraceae): II. Developmental expression, heritability and cost of cyanogenesis



Evolutionary Ecology Research 2(3): 337-352



We examine the cyanogenesis polymorphism in the weedy shrub Turnera ulmifolia on Jamaica with respect to our hypothesis that seedlings in some populations have significantly higher levels of cyanogenesis than mature plants because of the developmental loss of cyanogenesis. Furthermore, we provide estimates of among-family variance, as estimates of broad sense heritability, for a number of fitness-related traits, and also examine the potential cost of cyanogenesis in this species.
