About this book

This Proceedings volume contains the papers that were presented at the Second International Symposium on the Structure and Functioning of Plant Populations held in Wageningen, The Netherlands, in May 1984. It was also the second congress of the International Society of Plant Biologists. This is the second in a series, the aim of which is to bring together existing knowledge of the demography, population genetics and ecophysiology of plants and to stimulate a multidisciplinary approach to the population biology of plants. Special attention has been given in this book to the phenotypic and genotypic variations within and between plant populations.


Phenotypic Variation and Implications for Reproductive Success (P.A. Werner). Ecophysiological Adaptation, Plastic Responses, and Genetic Variation of Annuals, Biennials and Perennials in Woodland Clearings (J. van Andel and W.H.O. Ernst). Comparison of Dactylis Glomerata and Bromus Erectus Populations from Contrasted Successional Stages (J. Roy).

Measuring the Effects of Genetic Variation of Plant Fitness (R.A. Ennos). Interactions Between White Clover and Perennial Ryegrass in an Old Permanent Pasture (C. Gliddon and P. Trathan). Cohort Behaviour and Environmental Determination of Life Histories Within a Natural Population of Plantago Coronopus L. (M.J. Hutchings and S. Waite). Phenotypic Plasticity and Genetic Differentiation of Demographic Characteristics in Some Plantago Species (C.W.P.M. Blom and L.A.P. Lotz). Genetic Differentiation for Physiological and Morphological Traits in Plantago Lanceolata L. and Plantago Major L. (H. Lambers, D. Kuiper and J. van der Toorn). The Significance of Genetic Variations in Plants as Illustrated by Plantago Populations (W. van Delden). Why are So Many Plantago Species Gynodioecious? (J.M.M. van Damme). Pollen Flow Patterns and the Creation of Local Genotypic Variation (S.N. Handel). Ecological Genetics of Breakdown in Tristyly (S.C.H. Barrett).
