The effects of climate change on floral anthocyanin polymorphisms

Matthew Koski & Cierra Sullivan
Pigmentation affords resistance to abiotic stressors, and thus can respond adaptively or plastically to drought and extreme temperatures associated with global change. Plants frequently display variability in flower coloration that is underlain by anthocyanin pigmentation. While anthocyanin polymorphisms impact plant-animal interactions, they also impact reproductive performance under abiotic stress. We used descriptions of population-level flower color from >1900 herbarium records representing 12 North American species spanning 124 years to test whether flower color responded to...
