Genetic variance and covariance for physiological traits in Lobelia: are there constraints on adaptive evolution?



Genetic variance and covariance for physiological traits in Lobelia: are there constraints on adaptive evolution?



Evolution; International Journal of Organic Evolution 59(4): 826-837



Physiological traits that control the uptake of carbon dioxide and loss of water are key determinants of plant growth and reproduction. Variation in these traits is often correlated with environmental gradients of water, light, and nutrients, suggesting that natural selection is the primary evolutionary mechanism responsible for physiological diversification.
