Sympatric Bt Brassica napus alters the reproductive strategy of wild relative B. juncea

The sympatric presence of transgenic crops with their wild relatives is an ecological concern. Liu et al. conducted a field experiment using insect enclosures...

The enigma of sex allocation in Selaginella

The enigmatic variation in sex allocation within and among Selaginella species, and differences from the angiosperms, are interesting aspects of land plant biology in their own right, but will also provide useful empirical models for probing the theory of sex allocation.

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.

Gender segregation and sex allocation in pine
