Analysis of population genetic structure and gene flow in an annual plant before and after a rapid evolutionary response to drought

Climate change can have widespread and devastating impacts, but little is known about the effects of this change on the genetics of natural populations. In...

Temporal variation in gender in an annual plant

The widespread tendency towards declining fruit set from first to last flowers on plants may contribute to temporal variation in allocation optima.
