Examining maternal effects and genetic differentiation in P. flexilis and P. aristata to improve success of conservation actions
As the climate changes and invasive species continue to spread, proactive management may be needed to conserve native plant populations. Selecting appropriate plant material for restoration or other actions that will sustain populations is an integral part of any such plan and must take into account genetic differentiation to limit maladaptation. Common garden studies are used to determine the genetic basis of trait variation among populations from different geographic sources. However, maternal effects, the effect of environment during offspring development, can also affect performance, ...
