Climatic history, constraints, and the plasticity of phytochemical traits under water stress

Aramee Diethelm, Michael Reichelt, Thomas Dilts, James Farlin, Audrey Marlar & Elizabeth Pringle
Environmental stress can induce changes in organismal traits and in resulting intraspecific variation. The nature of such effects will depend on the plasticity of trait expression and on any ecological constraints to such expression. Plants can mitigate abiotic stress, like drought, by changing their chemistry, but the ability to induce costly metabolites may be under strong local selection and ecologically constrained. Here we asked whether climate at the seed source predicts plant chemical plasticity in...
