A teratological phenomenon found in a plant of Atriplex elegans subsp. thornberi (M. E. Jones) W. L. Wagner, from a wild population in Sonora, México, is described. Its flattened and expanded stem from the base to the terminal portion, its terminal bifurcation and coiled appearance are indicative of a fasciation. The phenomenon affects also the inflorescence.

    Elucidating the mechanisms of species coexistence is a crucial goal in ecology. Theory suggests that, when resource abundance fluctuates, coexistence can be achieved if each species in a competing pair is better at exploiting resources at opposite extremes of a fluctuating resource spectrum....

    The floral syndrome of Zizyphus mauritiana Lamk. (Rhamnaceae) reflects its adaptation to insects. We examined the blossom visitor assemblage of Z. mauritiana in relation to plant density. Results indicate that flowers of this plant species are visited by 86 species of insects which consisted 32...

    Andromonoecy is the predominant form of sex expression in big bluestem (Andropogon gerardii Vitman), but plants with perfect pedicellate spikelets occur in some populations in the Great Plains. Low seed set in andromonoecious big bluestem suggests seed production is resource limited. On the...
