Interannual variation in season length is linked to strong co-gradient plasticity of phenology in a montane annual plant
Species are commonly distributed along latitudinal and elevational gradients of growing season length to which they might respond via phenotypic plasticity and / or adaptive genetic differentiation. However, the relative ...
Body size and fitness in plants: Revisiting the selection consequences of competition
Having capacity for a relatively large plant body size is usually regarded as a key functional trait associated with success under competition between resident species within natural vegetation. This traditional ...

Transcriptional and post-translational upregulation of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase in Arabidopsis thaliana (L. Heynh) under cadmium stress
Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC) is a tightly controlled anaplerotic enzyme that replenishes organic acids that have been withdrawn from the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Organic acid anions are important chelators of ...
Extra-pair offspring are less heterozygous than within-pair offspring in American redstarts (Setophaga ruticilla)
The vast majority of bird species are socially monogamous; however, extra-pair paternity is nearly ubiquitous and a number of theories have been proposed to explain the prevalence of this mixed mating strategy. Here, we ...
