Under changing climate conditions, understanding local adaptation of plants is crucial to predicting the resilience of ecosystems. We selected black...

The behavioural ecology of climbing plants

Ernesto Gianoli.

in AoB PLANTS

P ublished online March 2015 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Ecology and Conservation; Plant Physiology; Plant Evolution; Plant Sciences and Forestry. 7959 words.

Climbing plants require an external support to grow vertically and enhance light acquisition. Vines that find a suitable support have greater performance and fitness than those that remain...
