plant population ecology
what are the relative magnitudes of effects of ecological and genetic factors in demographic changes in plant population
Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.
Plant population is under competition for its co-existence with multiple species and competition is the major factor that affects the co-existence of species. A typical plant population contains genetic variation and usually adapts very well to altered ecological environment. Therefore, during competition for co-existence environmental variation imparts stronger effect on the survival and existence of plant population thantheir genotype.
Hope this helps,
